Chipewyan, a name given to us by the Cree which means ‘pointed skin’, (in reference to the clothes the Chipewyan wore) is an Aboriginal group that spans across the northern parts of Canada. However, most Chipewyan prefer to be called Dene (‘the people’) in place of Chipewyan.
I am not Indian. I have no ancestors from India.
I am a mixed race First Nations person whose history is rooted in the Dene people from Canada and the Aztec people in El Salvador.
Indigenous people are not a costume. Indigenous people are not a trend. Indigenous people are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. - Mod M
While you’re at it don’t dress up as pirates either because pirates are not a costume. Pirates are not a trend. Pirates are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve.
I say we just ban costumes over all so we don’t offend any group of people, because we all know; If you are offended, you’re always in the right.

In Photos: “Signares” by Fabrice Monteiro.
As European traders and explorers began to ascend on Africa’s west coast around the 15th and 16th century, as these men where forbidden from bringing their families and wives from their home countries, they began to intermingle and intermarry with African women in the Senegambia region. As a result of these relations, many of these women began to orchestrate business dealings to their benefits “using these partnerships to bolster their socioeconomic standing and personal trading enterprises”. One signare in the 1770s from St Louis, Senegal, is noted to have been a property owner and dealer as she bought and sold property in Saint-Domingue, while “five other signares in Gorée signed a petition against a poorly run French company that had been awarded an exclusive contract with the island”.
Although these relations were not at first recognized by colonial and European authorities, it later became acceptable for Europeans living in Senegal to marry and have their descendants profit from these unions through heritage rights. Most of these women were considered to be of a high class and often married “middle-class executives or French and English aristocrats”. Naturally, a new sense of fashion was born as the women combined their own traditional styles with European attire at the time.
All Africa, All the time.
Lupita gets the role of storm in the X-men and she also gets to be Storm in her punk phase. Let this happen. Put it in the air.
OMG YES THE PUNK PHASE! I know the writers made it like a ‘joke’ but that doesn’t keep it from being bad ass ~ Or black panther storm?
I don’t why they gave her a gun though… She’s can control lightning and wind. She can literally just blow a bitch away.
XD she got the gun for show, you know she’s not even gonna shoot you. I like black panther storm and punk storm. Either storm is great to me. Lets just get Lupita as storm period.
