Amber Rose, wife of rapper Wiz Khalifa offended many Native Americans after wearing the traditional headdress at the Coachella Music Festival yesterday.
The headdress also called war bonnets are traditionally worn by ‘honored’ Plains Native American men for ceremonial purposes. They are seen as objects of great spiritual importance.
Some warriors would only earn 2-3 feathers in a lifetime signifying how difficult they were to obtain.
The bonnets could never be worn without the tribal leaders consent and was a mark of highest respect.
Today, the bonnet is still only to be worn on special occasions as it is highly symbolic of ‘earned’ brave deeds.
Looks like Amber didn’t do her research before trying to make a fashion statement, huh? Ignorance is bliss.
