Wednesday Mar 25th, 2009 9:00 AM
Dance party with themed rooms (called "Water: Island Natives (Maori): Air: Cliff Natives (Anasazi) : Earth: Jungle Natives (Shipibo) : Fire: Desert Natives (Pueblo)") encourages you to 'GO-NATIVE' and offers you a discount if you show up in Native costume. Although it is a benefit for the Native American Church, it is never-the-less up to us to challenge this behavior and stop re-victimizing First Nations and Indigenous Peoples.
