Sasquatch! Sunday: Anyone Else a Little Taken Aback By All the Warpaint and Feathers?

We are, after all, in an area of the country rich with Native American heritage, and the outfits du jour at Sasquatch! this year appears to be anything related to the kind of American Indian image painted by white oppressors of Native Americans. I understand we still live in the world of Cleveland Indians and Washington Redskins, but this seems like a step backward, right?

Among the responses I got when I asked those dressed up what the deal was:

"It's what we're about."

"Why not?"

"Chief Seattle, baby! Chief Seattle!"

Check back all weekend long for Reverb's coverage of Sasquatch! 2010. And see how you can contribute to our coverage.
