A Native American Feathered Headdress is a Badge of Honor that Must Be Earned

    I recently learned that the feathered headdresses (also known as war bonnets) that native American chieftains are often depicted as wearing are badges of honor that must be earned, and they are earned when a warrior demonstrates great bravery or prowess in battle or leadership skills within their tribe, akin to the medals and badges that members of the modern military wear.

    Therefore, when a Caucasian person wears such an item, they are being disrespectful, not because they are not a native American, but because they (likely) did not earn it. Most people have sufficient respect for the modern military to know to not wear badges or medals that they did not earn, so the same is true for feathered headdresses, as well.

    Did anyone else know this interesting fact? I thought that I would share it with everyone.

    I feel like this thread is a continuation of that “how do you show other people that you’re intelligent” conversation.

    You ain’t slick.

    That does not bother me, as I do not wish to be "slick," nor have I ever pretended that I am. To me, "slick" is a synonym for "sleazy," and, therefore, a negative word; it conjures images of characters such as Mike Damone from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, who thought that he was cool, but actually was not, or of Quagmire from Family Guy, who thinks of himself as a great ladies' man, but is actually a creepy pervert.

    I am almost afraid to ask this, but you are not saying that native Americans are "barbarians," are you?

    In no way, shape, or form was I saying that you were a racist, but I was wondering why you felt that it was necessary to make that comment.

    Wait... you're telling me that drunk fratboys dressed up in headdresses while spending their trust funds on overpriced trainers and trying to throw up on strippers aren't respectful to Native American culture? Huh.
