With just over a week until Halloween, take a look at this new “I am not a costume” campaign designed by students at Ohio University in 2011.
Noel Altha, a blogger at Last Real Indians produced a video based on the campaign.
Powwows.com has the story:
Many children and adults across the country wear culturally based costumes such Pocahatas, terrorist, and more.
This controversial topic has been discussed many times in the past. But each year the costumes still remain.
In 2011 students at Ohio University started a campaign – “We’re a Culture, Not a Costume“. They produced a series of posters to help raise awareness of this issue.
Altha said the response to her video has been largely positive.
