I already posted my opinion on the warbonnet in Lana's video in that thread, but imo I wasn't really offended by her wearing one in the video and found it more symbolic than racist. Then again I don't follow the traditions of those who view such pieces as religious garb despite being a Native citizen myself. However I can understand Natives (especially those from the Plains tribes) that follow traditional beliefs to be offended by it than I would and they have a right to that opinion.
Speaking of Nelly's video, I think it would've been great if Lana had Natives in
instead of biker dudes. Would've made more sense to me and gave some recognition to Natives as well. But that's a lost opportunity so oh well.
