Most of these crafts are great to do with young kids, but please, please, do NOT make "costumes" as apart of teaching your children about Native culture. These costumes are offensive and do not adequately reflect my culture in any way. Our regalias are personal to us and are all unique. They are usually made with the help of elderly women in our families, such as our mothers and grandmothers.
These "costumes" do not reflect the amount of work, love, and culture that goes into making an individual's regalia. With that being said, I hope that you would choose not to do this "craft" with your children. A note on the costumes Thankfully, our local school has a policy against this for the Halloween parade, along with any other costume that could be offensive.
