Not a Costume

Not a Costume, open at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology from September 27 to December 13, 2018.

Not a Costume examines issues of identity, stereotypes, and cultural appropriation connected to contemporary Indigenous fashion of the Western Hemisphere. The exhibition is curated by students and museum staff in collaboration with Colgate community members (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) who identify as members of an Indigenous community in the Americas. Fashion items range from earrings to skirts, traditional regalia to T-shirts, and high fashion to streetwear.
