big yikes on the DIY headdress! really would love to see the trend of white-hipsters-ironically-donning-native-headdresses go away ASAP.

bruns - No harm or disrespect meant or done - (we think it's beautiful) - in fact Earl (Poppytalk co-founder) is First Nations (or as they say in the US - Native American)

Thanks, Jan!

i fail to see how earl being first nations makes it any less offensive for people to make themselves a war bonnet because they think it is pretty. a true war bonnet is earned feather-by-feather over a lifetime, not simply bought at the local craft store and glued together in an afternoon. starbucks' version misappropriates and insults plains indian culture, plain and simple.

other people think so too: http://nativeappropriations.blogspot.com/2010/07/diy-headdress-from-bright-young-things.html

(and yes, i realize this response is weeks late, but i was taking the bar and this apparently still bothered me.)
