First you will eradicate the whole Indian Native Americans, then you make them alcholics and now you put a native American headdresses on the heads of some naked models and you name it Victoria’s Secret underwear fashion show. Victoria’s Secret shows tits and asses in silk underwear disrespects the tribal culture, history and pride of Native Americans !

New York / NationalTurk – Victoria’s Secret has at least apologized for putting a Native American-style Indian headdress on a model for its annual underpants fashion show, after the abuse of Indian outfit and headdress and was heavily criticized as a display of ignorance toward tribal culture and history. It was an abuse of Indian culture, from a nation that lacks history culture and values.

Victoria’s Secret responded to the criticism over the weekend by stating it was sorry to have upset anyone and that it wouldn’t include the Indian outfit in the show’s television broadcast next month, or in any marketing materials.

‘ We sincerely apologize as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone, because we are incapable of considering ‘ Victoria’s Secret issued a statement.

Historically, Indian headdresses symbolize respect, worn by Native American war chiefs and warriors. For Great Plains tribes, each feather placed on a headdress has significance and had to be earned through an act of compassion or bravery. Some modern-day Native American leaders have received war bonnets in ceremonies accompanied by prayers and songs.

“When you see a Lakota chief wearing a full headdress, you know that he was a very honorable man. He was a leader of his tribe. He did a lot of honorable things for his people,” said Michelle Spotted Elk, a Santa Cruz, California, woman of mixed heritage whose husband is Lakota Indian. “It also has religious significance. With them, there’s not a division between spirituality and their leadership.”

Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss walked onto the runway last week wearing the floor-length feathered Native American headdress, leopard-print underwear and high heels, a true slutty way to state ‘ hi hubby, look what i bought with ypur money ‘ ‘

Karlie Kloss also was adorned with fringes and turquoise jewelry during a segment meant to represent the 12 months of the year – fireworks in July, rain gear for April and a headdress for November.

Victoria’s Secret underwear model Karlie Kloss herself posted then on her Twitter account, playing the innocent : Her tweet said sche was “deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone.’

Her words or words from her bosses, please feel free to consider about it.

Thousands of people have commented about the Indian outfit controversy on Victoria’s Secret Facebook page. Some praised Karlie Kloss’ attire as artistic and urged those offended by it to “get over it.” Typical American way of ignorance and so-called care-free attitude that lacks empathy.

Several noted appreciation to Victoria’s Secret for halting its marketing approach for the clothing, and others reached back in history to explain their feelings.

“We have gone through the atrocities to survive and ensure our way of life continues,” Navajo Indian Nation spokesman Erny Zah stated in an interview after weekend. “Any mockery, whether it’s Halloween, Victoria’s Secret – they are spitting on us. They are spitting on our culture, and it’s upsetting.”

USA continues to abuse Indians, Native Americans with their show-bussiness, even after Indian were eradicated by their hands

The Victoria’s Secret Indian headdress stir follows a string of similar incidents. Paul Frank Industries Inc. and the band No Doubt ran into criticism earlier this year for their use of headdresses in clothing and parties, and in a cowboys-and-Indians-themed video, respectively. They offered apologies as well.

Last year, Urban Outfitters Inc. set off a firestorm of criticism with its line of Navajo-branded clothing and accessories – particularly underwear and a liquor flask, which the tribe said was “derogatory and scandalous.”

Abaki Beck was among a handful of Native American students who hosted a discussion last week at a private liberal arts college in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Native American culture in fashion and sports. She said companies first must learn from the mistake of ignoring Native American history and then make an effort to engage with Indian Country.

Beck wanted more than a short apology from Victoria’s Secret instead of what she said sounded like an automated soulless response which fits to the general ambitions of most US companies.

“But perhaps that is an unrealistic hope,” said the 19-year-old member of the Blackfeet Nation of Montana. “It is all about business, after all.”

Jennie Luna, who is Chicana and Caxcan, expressed US society largely is ignorant toward indigenous spirituality of Indians and doesn’t understand what should not be marketed commercially. She and others say more education about Native American cultures is needed.

“We are people; we’re not a fashion statement,” Luna expressed. “We are people who are facing serious issues, and for them to further perpetuate the type of stereotypes and disregard for a community’s way of life is unacceptable.”

ReGina Zuni’s advice to companies looking to market Native American culture is to hire Native Americans who have knowledge of tribal traditions, cultures and customs.

However, her reaction to hearing about the Victoria’s Secret headdress wasn’t outrage about the clothing itself, but about the lack of attention on health care, education, housing and other issues in Indian Country.

“To each his own,” states Zuni, of Isleta Pueblo in New Mexico. “But seriously, if people want to grab media attention on Indian values and tradition, this is not the issue to advance and place in the spotlight.”

Marlon Brando showed once how Indian culture could be used for film industry : Brando won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance, but turned down the Oscar, becoming the second actor to refuse a Best Actor award.

Brando boycotted the Oscar award ceremony, sending instead American Indian Rights activist Sacheen Littlefeather, who appeared in full Apache dress, also wearing an Indian headdress, to state Brando’s reasons, which were based on his objection to the depiction of American Indians by Hollywood and television.

  1. Every American, native or not, has the ability to become what they want to be today. To say they are being turned into alcoholics is ridiculous! They do NOT have to drink alcohol. That is a personal choice for anyone of any culture! To say they are being exploited is to say that every race is being exploited because every nationality (except Muslim) has been used in commercialism. It’s the way of this world. I am not saying I like half naked women exposing themselves, but they are models and this is their career choice. YOU and I do not have to watch. Marlon Brando didn’t mind making his fortune in acting. The United States government has given the Native American peoples free education, land, housing, health care. Many do not want to further themselves. It reminds me of the inner city ghettos. Your article has been written as a means to bash the United States of America as a whole. So YOU need to get over YOURSELF. If you live in America then GET OUT! You have the freedom to LEAVE! If you don’t live here, then STFU!

  2. This is so rude!i will not leave,I will not get over it,and you Americans deserve us natives an apology I don’t care wether you would be mad or no if it was you!this is disrespecting my culture and offending it,you are treating mine terrible,and I don’t care how much you
    Americans make at the strip club!!!!!screw you Victoria secret and all you American haters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. THIS IS ALL SO SAD THEY SHOULD BE MADE TO OPEN A SCHOOL IN AS MANY AREAS AS EACH PEICE OF PHONY FEATHERD AND TURQUIOSE AND EVERY PAIR OF UNDIES AND BRAS AND HIGH HEELS.PAY TO TEACH NATIVE LANGUAGE AND SUPPORT TREATMENT FOR ADDICTION. NOT JUST THEM,BUT ANY CORPORATION USEING A PERSONS/PEOPLES LIFE TO MAKE MONEY. PUT IT BACK WHERE YOU MADE IT FROM! THIS IS FRESH,NO ROOM FOR DENIAL.
    THIS IS A CULTURE THAT LIVED WITH NATURE. NOT GOING AGAINST IT NOT MAKING AIR YOU CAN NOT BREATH WATER YOU CAN NOT DRINK! WE ALL CAN LEARN FROM THE ELDERS. THE MOST REMARABLE WAYS OF LIFE ARE COMING TO THE END. RESPECT! HELP KEEP WHAT IS STILL HERE! FALLOW THE OLD WAYS OR DIE.THIS PLANET CAN NOT TAKE ANYMORE ABUSE. ELDERS TEACH! HELP THOSE THAT CAN NOT HELP THEM SELVES! STOP ADDICTION EDUCATION. TEACH CHILDREN YOUNG. TAKE BACK THE POWER.<3

  4. Thank you for posting this article. So many companies abuse cultures they know nothing about without thinking about thinking about how they impact those cultures. I agree, parading a half naked woman in a N-A headdress was extremely disrespectful. If a company or a person/artist wanted to bring attention to a specific culture, they should show full respect for said culture. Ignorance breeds ignorance, and until people realize that, they will continue to breed ignorance. And to those posting hateful comments about getting over it, it’s kind of hard to get over anything when your culture is constantly being stomped on. It’s like being slapped in the face, told that they are sorry, and then slapping you in the face again within a few minutes. To be so nonchalantly passive about cultural abuse is the reason cultural abuse continues in this world. If you stand for nothing, you fall for everything!!!! To the writer of this great article, be proud, stay proud, and continue fighting. There are so many people behind you!

  5. “First you will eradicate the whole Indian Native Americans, then you make them alcholics and now you put a native American headdresses on the heads of some naked models”
    are you really so stupid!? you can not accuse the same american people for what happened a while ago and what is happening now. don’t call american stupid because it’s fucking racist and dont insult womans! THANK YOU

  6. I think its all stupid. Its appreciating the headdress as a piece of art. The fashion industry, even though many can’t see, is a form of art. Get over it.

  7. You do realize that Ms. Littlefeather poised in a 1973 Playboy magazine topless. Self-rightous people – it’s all about the $$$, not honor.

  8. Get over it, i am Polish American if they wore a perogi I wouldn’t be offended. Overly sensitive people are what is really ruining this country, don’t like it here, leave

  9. Welcome to America, the America that is TODAY. Where they disgrace every culture. Even their own. So don’t act like this is new. Thanks.

  10. this is a discrace im native american and we are not no where near close to be the kind of people to show our body in public in lingerie and exploiting our self
