ByOwlPost: I'm guessing here, but I'd bet there are over a million 'full blooded' Native American Indians in the USA, possibly more. Partial Indians are even greater in number.

Now 'full blooded' could mean a mix of different tribes. The 2010 US Census claims 2.9 million, self-identified, 'sole' Native Indians, how many are actually 100% would just be a guess.

The world of fashion is probably the last place you should look to for political awareness.

A Native American headdress with LEOPARD spots? Come on! If you're going to misappropriate a culture, go all the way, people! Make it jaguar print - they live in North America. Show me some splotchy rosettes. Those are too filled in.

Maybe they, like Columbus, got Native Americans confused with Indians. Because there are, in fact, leopards in India...

@Jamie76 - I didn't know there were any "full blooded" Native Indians around any more. Not trying to be offensive here, I just thought most had mixed it up a bit by now. That's cool.

How could nobody have commented on the bit of visible labia? Come on, people, pay attention to the mean persons.

I am Native Indian (mom is full, dad is half)...and I have NO problem with this at all.

course, she could use some sensitivity training and I would be happy to provide it to her.

No one cares to explore a truly 'new world' that was never truly explored at all in the first place. If people knew what really happened they would probably reexamine what it means to be American.

Andrew155- What you said highlights the problem here- the only thing people 'remember' about the Indians are from their school mascots or place names- maybe isn't the fault of them, but the fault of everyone else who couldn't care less. You can't remember a group of people who, nevermind this being their continent originally, also live side by side with you in said continent- unless you see a pooty racist mascot or a girl dressed in lingerie and a headdress? That's like saying black people only have cultural visibility because of minstrel shows. Learn a little bit about the people who's country you live in. It's actually pretty interesting stuff.

"Wait.. Is the headdress portrayed as a deeply spiritual/religious item to Native Americans? Only asking since I really do not know."

Does it even matter?? If someone used African regalia no one would care--not all Native Americans are raindancers. In fact, most are your neighbors--and disproportionately your armed service men.

It looks nice. They actually used turquoise in the dress which is traditional.

It's acceptable to be racist as long as you're also being sexist. If you're looking to Vic's Secret for social responsibility, you're sadly misguided.

@Slotherder I meant it as sarcasm .. point I was trying to make was that perhaps native americans are their target demographic ... This is totally grasping at straws for the racism card IMO.

We should all start pretending that there were no native Americans when Columbus landed. Let's remove all references to them from our history. I wonder if that would make them happy.

"Make who happy?"

Right.

Are we mad because Indian casino c*cktail waitresses have the best costumes, or is it something else I'm not getting?

People's sensibilities get offended so easily. Wearing a sombrero, a samurai helmet, an ushanka (russian hat), or - forbid - a sexy nun's outfit, is not the worst thing in the world.


Besides, if the Native Americans want people to stop using their images and culture, or their tribe names as school mascots (My high school was the Mascoutah Indians), then I'm fine with that. The only problem is that everyone will forget about the Indians. Nobody will know who the Mascoutans were, or the Illini.

Not any worse than the angel campaign they had for a long time IMO. I do understand the Native American (feeling some of a personal connection) nation wanting to stop the outside commercialization of the culture, especially when it's fairly vulgar. But really, who takes VS seriously? I heard that VS said, while apologizing, that they viewed it as art. The leopard print fills out the costume very accurately as well, adding supremely to the artistic value. lawl

This is a tough call. I'm in the same boat as "KungFuGuy". If the headdress is a deeply spiritual/religious item, then yes, it is very offensive as it cheapens it. If not, then it's not offensive at all. I think it really depends on who it was that was offended by this.

I'll tell you what I find offensive, that creepy, anorexic chick on stage pretending she's sexy. Why some guys like their woman to look like they are moments away from starving to death, is beyond me. It's all about the curves baby.
