No Doubt – Looking hot

Comment: A recent phenomenon of attractive/famous, young white women adorning themselves in Native American traditional wear/symbols in music videos where it is highly sexualized(which influences a big cultural problem of sexual abuse of aboriginal women ), old stereotypical imagery or using symbols that they haven’t earned the right to use (War bonnet)

Another example – Victoria’s Secret Karlie Kloss
“Now, Victoria’s Secret has upped the ante.  Wednesday night, their fashion show featured model Karlie Kloss in a leopard print bikini accessorized with turquoise jewelry and fringe covered heels, strutting down the catwalk in a floor-length, feathered war bonnet.”

A video that supports access – amateur design.
A kid made his own arcade out of cardboard boxes. SEE IT. Really inspirational and funny kid, can also go under FUN ’cause he did it because he wanted to.
