Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

They decided that giving Korra next to no advertising, completely ruining its ratings and not making it available for download wasn’t enough, took it one step further and took it off the air and made it so you can only see it online now. It’s really frustrating because it’s such a good series and it does not get the treatment or advertising that it deserves. I mean for Christs sake they’ll promote an episode of Spongebob 2 weeks before it comes out, but wont give Korra Jack shit. It’s the only thought provoking series that network has and they’re completely fucking it.
