How To Not Be Offensive At Coachella!

How not to be offensive at <a href=

It's really not difficult at all to not be offensive at Coachella.

It's a no-brainer. And yet some celebs and regular people still struggle with it.

Fear not, however, because we have created a guide for you that breaks down exactly what not to do during the music festival if you don't want to be offensive.

1. Don't Wear A Headdress

Headdresses are sacred to many Native Americans. They are not an accessory to wear to a music festival but rather an honor bestowed upon a high-ranking tribal member. They must also be earned by the wearer. Do not do like Alessandra Ambrosio (above), Khloé Kardashian, or Jessica Simpson and wear one just because you think it looks cool.

It may indeed look "cool," but it's not a fashion accessory, and treating it as such cheapens the true meaning and significance of a headdress.

2. Don't Wear A Bindi

We see you, Kylie Jenner!

On Wednesday, the KUWTK starlet took to Instagram to flaunt her bikini body in a particularly tiny, flesh colored two piece. Hot damn!

Miz Jenner left little to the imagination as she nearly spilled out of her hot bikini. Someone's certainly ready for summer!

Not to mention, the 18-year-old once again donned cornrows almost a year after Hunger Games alum Amandla Stenberg accused the reality TV star of promoting cultural appropriation. Nonetheless, it seems many of Ky Ky's 63.8 million followers couldn't help but compare the up-and-comer with her big sister Kim Kardashian West.

A Primer On Cultural Appropriation Before Coachella — Important Things You Need To Know

Do not wear Native headdress to Coachella, please.

The concept of cultural appropriation still has some people scratching their heads and saying, "I don't get it. What's the big deal?"

Let us educate you, Perezcious readers, and we hope you'll keep an open mind.

Photos: Cultural Appropriation In Fashion & Style

The most basic definition is adopting aspects of a culture, like clothing or hairstyles, that are not a part of your own culture. For example, wearing a sari or kimono when you're not Indian or Japanese.

It's not always inappropriate or offensive, because it does really depend on context and the power dynamic between dominant and minority cultures. However, if you're wearing these items of clothing as a costume to a Halloween party, it can definitely be offensive to members of that culture who do not see their traditional clothes as costumes to be worn just for fun, or to be mocked.

Moreover, sacred aspects of a culture, such as Native American headdresses, are considered offensive when worn by non-Natives because they are traditionally earned by the men of a particular tribe, and not meant to add a "cool" factor to your Coachella outfit. The same goes for bindis, which have sacred religious meaning for Hindu women in particular.

Certain hairstyles can also be seen as offensive cultural appropriation. Amandla Stenberg, who called out Kylie Jenner for sporting cornrows but never speaking out about the injustices faced by black people, explains it perfectly HERE.

Many black people feel that white people, who are still the dominant culture in American society and inarguably the world at large, love to adopt black hairstyles, slang, and fashion, but then rarely, if ever, speak out about the racism that still affects black men and women on a daily basis.

When marginalized people see their culture being usurped by people in power who don't use that power to help them or be good allies, it makes them feel even more disenfranchised.

We hope you'll keep all this in mind if you're going to Coachella this month, or planning a Halloween costume, and also just in general as an educated citizen of the world.

Have fun in the desert; just don't be a d*ck!
