Today, you'd be hard-pressed to find a music festival that isn't peppered with cultural appropriation. Everything from bindis to "box braids" are perceived as a ~cool new trend~ rather than stripping the looks from their cultural significance.

However, very few attendees publicly apologize — which makes this online interaction a rare occurrence. 

Professor and author of the website Native Appropriations, Dr. Adrienne Keene, tweeted about two girls who wore Native American headdresses while at Coachella.

One of the girls SAW the criticism — and apologized.

"I want to genuinely apologize to anyone who has been upset about my headdress post at [C] intention was not to offend or cause any continuous pain to a community my ancestors and family are [a] part of." 

Although most of the reception towards her apology has been positive, some followers still seemed unclear as to why appropriating another culture is offensive.

These kinds of conversations around cultural appropriation are awesome, and it's great that there's progress — but many more discussions need to happen in order to make a substantial change.
