It’s the time of year when Native people brace for the commercial costumes that others don at Halloween parties. They’re scary in a different way. Scantily-clad Native “princesses” and Indian “maidens” in buckskin bikinis and cheap headdresses are among the classics that remain popular. NBC host Megyn Kelly is under fire for publicly wondering what’s wrong with “blackface” costumes. Uproar by fans of the TV series “Handmaid’s Tale” got one company to pull a version of the show’s signature red, hooded robes. But for Native Americans, it’s another year of head-shaking over inappropriate costumes.
