Not a Costume

[DANCE MUSIC PLAYING] So this ties up with the
exhibition of the Longyear Museum and is not
a costume party, but it is a costume party. It’s just not a
costume party where you would wear what means
something traditional for different groups of people. So this not a costume
costume party event is important because we’re
thinking critically in a way about how not to be
culturally appropriative. Traditional dress,
traditional regalia for Native American groups
and groups across the world, actually, are not costumes. They’re actually important,
making a statement about the importance of
culture and tradition to them.
