My team at school has chosen to dress up with a Peter Oan theme for our Halloween book character parade. I'm supposed to be Tiger Lily. I am trying to keep this free to low cost and am at a loss. Depending on your creative brains to help!

You may not be aware of this but many First Nations people find costumes such as this one very offensive. The original movie was full of racial stereotypes.

I didn't think about it being offensive. My great grandmother was named Nataki Redfern. I wish I had some of her things to look at.

I don't have any boots of any kind. I have a pair of sort of winter white knits pants. I'm a big girl, so no leggings.

Do you have a thrift store near you? Perhaps you could get a beige bed sheet and cut a hole for your head then just wrap closed.

As teachers we should be respectful of all races and cultures.

I don't think that would fly here, either.

We do have a somewhat sizeable native American/ American Indian population where I live so that plays a role.

Wow! Just got my eyes opened. I appreciate the input and links. I didn't consider that even though Tiger Lily is a character from a book, it's based on a stereotype and exaggerates certain characteristics of Native Americans.

We have 1 photo of my great grandmother. She was wearing a feed sack dress!

Did someone else already take the role of the Crocodile, Tick Tock? That might be easy. Just wear a green shirt, fashion some kind of crocodile visor out of green construction paper, and an alarm clock out of cardboard to wear. And go around and say, "Tick tock, tick tock!" Lol

I absolutely would not use your relative as a justification for anything like this. Just FYI.

There is actually a negative, racist stereotype about white people in particular, although being a minority I've heard it in my own family so it's not really just white people. The stereotype is using the 1/16th yada yada or the staple "minority race best friend" as an excuse to justify racist costumes or behavior. It would be playing stereotype on stereotype, which would be very bad.

I'm sorry, but I agree wholeheartedly with PPs that this is offensive. Personally, I wouldn't be a part of it and would suggest my team brainstorm a different plan.

That's what I'm trying to say- I'm not going to dress like Tiger Lily- my great gran didn't dress like that. I appreciate the education- I understand.

I didn't think of the offense immediately either. Of course I get it now. I assume Pan and Hook are taken; Wendy would be easy (nightgown) and so would Nana--put a doily and tray on your head and wear a dog collar.

Nana is a great idea! Truthfully, I've never read the book. ��
