Indigenous cultures should be respected. Recently, CNN reporter gave a racist coverage on the meeting the Royals of England has with the Maori tribe. At first, it was big news that the King of Maori could not meet the royals, now this coverage goes international. Some people like to wear fake feathers and regalia at parties and festivals, but do not understand that those are sacred elements to a culture. Our minds are filled with ignorance regarding indigenous cultures and people want to portray them as though it is okay to embody a culture with a costume. It is not respectful to our indigenous elders to have young individuals pose as a culture that does not belong to them. Tribes go through a lot on the daily basis and some of them even face poverty. Will "Go Native" continue among our generation? This report is definitely an act of disrespect towards our water people" What do you think? Is this crossing the line?
