Our Culture is Not a Costume


"I was trying to show it the proper way. I didn’t want to be wearing a scandalous little outfit and a headdress because that’s so wrong on so many levels. The headdress is sacred, women don’t wear that. I wore our traditional regalia. I showcased the healing dance, the jingle dress, I showcased everything I possibly could that they would be educated and understand our culture is not a costume." --Ashley Callingbull-Burnham (Enoch Cree)

From "‘I’m not going to shut up’: First Nations woman crowned Mrs. Universe urges Canadians to vote for new PM" in the National Post.
