    H&M pulls fashion headdresses from Canadian shelves after getting complaints

    H&M stores across Canada have pulled faux feather headdresses from their shelves after receiving complaints the items are offensive to aboriginals.

    The Native American zodiac signs are wholly unique, and you’ll not find these totemic birth animals anywhere else but here.

    Happy Nunavut Day!

    Nunavut Day, which is annually celebrated on July 9, commemorates passing of two Nunavut acts. The Canadian Parliament passed the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act and the Nunavut Act on July 9, 1993. Nunavut officially split from the Northwest Territories and became a Canadian territory on April 1, 1999.

    Those kinda girls (to the left) piss me off ! It’s maybe «fashion» or «hype» or however you call this «style», but do you all know  our culture ? Mhh.. I don’t think so. YES, we kept our traditions, but hey ! , we don’t dress like this anymore. We aren’t like this anymore. Yes, we still have traditional clothes, but we wear em only when there’s an important «date» (like a pow-wow) . I AM a « Native American » «Indian» «Aboriginal» , however you call us , but I don’t have lines on my face anymore and I don’t wear feathers in my ears everyday.
