Blog Archives - David Bernie
I aspire to create through the inspirations that surround me – from thoughts to visuals. I capture images with cameras, document thoughts with a pen & paper, create visuals with colors and textures, and illustrate my life through the medium of art. I am an indigenous (Yankton Sioux – Ihanktonwan Dakota) contemporary artist. I am David Bernie.

David Bernie Headdress Appropriation Shirt

T-Shirt – Headdress Appropriation

Headdress Appropriation

The Headdress Appropriation design is based off of the idea of popular culture continuously appropriating the plains tribal identity of headdresses at music festivals, fashion shows, and during Halloween.

The use of “headdress” in this instance is fluid and also reflects on the use of various regional tribal icons. You can easily find the use of “Navajo” used in conjunction with “panties.”
