A burlesque performer drew protests for wearing a buckskin bikini and feather headdress. A Seattle actress takes to the stage in a cartoonish Native American costume as a way to educate people about cultural misappropriation. We’ll hear from performers who say they’re on the right side of donning what’s known as “redface”. Just what are the boundaries of Native American dress and imagery? Is it ever appropriate to wear traditional attire on stage?
