Police Kick Girl Out of Powwow For Dancing with Sacred Regalia on Instagram

 

Police kicked a woman out of a Native American powwow after she put on a sacred piece of dancers' regalia and started dancing while wearing it.

The non-native was seen on video in the stands at the event in Denver on Sunday wearing a Native American's bustle of feathers. 

Another Native American who was in attendance at the Denver Coliseum then approaches her, tells her she is being disrespectful and demands that she remove it from her body. 

A member of the Sicangu Lakota nation toldNBC 9 News that a powwow should be treated like any other religious or sacred ceremony, and while visitors are welcome, non-natives should 'let modesty and respect be your guide.'
