Coachella has officially begun, and music festival and art lovers alike are all heading to California to be a part of it. Truth be told, I've never been to a music festival before, but I really don't think that it'd be my cup of tea. I'm not into big crowds, and I don't think that I'd be a fan of the experience as a whole, but I do love looking at most of the fashion from festivals like Coachella. See how I said most of? There is one theme that has unfortunately been recurring at this festival and others, and that is cultural appropriation. People have been taking symbols of another culture, one that does not belong to them and has a deep meaning they know nothing about, and wearing it because they think that it looks cute and fun and perfect for the festival. It is a shame that people like this don't see how that can have a negative effect on those who wear it, and that they didn't do the research to see what is behind that symbol. Check out some of the most cultural appropriated pieces below, along with basic definitions for each, to gain a better understanding!
