Please don't take this the wrong way, but this is considered racist to many native americans. It's offensive to them. I'm assuming that you weren't aware, but I'm just letting you know now. Females wearing warbonnets is considered racist because only males are supposed to wear warbonnets. It may sound odd and silly but just wanted to let you know x:
I couldn't agree more! I myself am part Native American, and I hate it when people are too ignorant to only associate them with feather hats, teepees, and screaming. There is so much more to them than people think, but it's because of the fact that people don't know any better that makes them not realize what they're doing. Even on a simple child's movie -- Peter Pan -- Native Americans are portrayed as having pure red skin, ALWAYS sitting cross-legged, ALWAYS smoking a tobacco pipe, and dancing around with their hand over their mouth screaming. Some of that is KIND OF close, but not really. This just encourages little kids to dance around screaming, which is actually making fun of them, but they're too na´ve to realize. I also hate the fact that people STILL continue to call them Indians, even though it's been known for CENTURIES now that they are NOT Indians. The politically correct term is Native Americans. Actually, they shouldn't even be called that -- they weren't ever Americans; the settlers just came over and called the place America. I know a lot of people don't care about the correct information of Native Americans, but I care -- and I agree that stuff like this is offensive and false. Plus, I don't mean to correct you, but it was actually only the chiefs that ever wore feathered head-dresses, or a tribes member that was also high in authority. But the men did wear certain cloth pieces when they were going to war, and you were right about women never wearing the war bonnets.
