Indigenous costumes won't be pulled off store shelves, Spirit Halloween says

 


Despite repeated calls to stop selling costumes such as "Reservation Royalty," "Indian Warrior" and "Indian Princess" at their stores, Spirit Halloween says they won't be taking them off shelves anytime soon.

"Since 1983, at Spirit Halloween, we have offered a wide and balanced range of Halloween costumes that are inspired by, celebrate and appreciate numerous cultures, make believe themes and literary figures," a spokesperson from the company said in a statement to CBC News.

"We have not directed any of our Spirit Halloween stores to remove Indigenous-themed costumes from our shelves, nor do we plan to have these costumes removed."
