Service Description

Cultural appropriation is the misuse of representations (e.g. dress, songs, ceremonial procedures, pictures, etc.) from a culture which distorts its' original intent. In this workshop, I offer four examples of the complicated nature of cultural appropriation in the United States, particularly regarding consumerism. I offer guidelines to support the navigation and facilitate a concluding discussion. In addition I offer examples that show the complexity of corporate-dominated media in order to demonstrate why EuroAmericans are ultimately vulnerable to misrepresentation in media in ways that perpetuates inequitable inter-cultural relationships.
