'Reservation Royalty,' 'Indian Princess' Halloween costumes hit Winnipeg shelves

 


"Reservation Royalty," "Indian Princess" and "Indian Warrior" Halloween costumes being sold in a Winnipeg store are offensive, hurtful and racist, some Indigenous Winnipeggers say.

Spirit Halloween on Pembina Highway carries a variety of Indigenous-themed costumes that a University of Manitoba professor calls "Disney-like."

"It's offensive, stereotypical and Disney-like," said Niigaan Sinclair, the native studies department head at the University of Manitoba.
