‘Save The Gretzkys!’

“The wife of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, Janet, is facing the wrath of social media after she posted an ‘Instagram’ photo of her daughter Emma and three other girls dressed in Aboriginal clothing.

“Dozens of commenters wrote to Gretzky, lambasting the hockey wife for photographing the girls in traditional ‘First Nations’ headdresses. They accused her of ‘cultural appropriation’ and ‘misunderstanding aboriginal culture’. 

“In Canada, we work tirelessly for {one-way} understanding and {one-way} reconciliation with our ‘First Nations’ people. Your family can do what you like, but with your wealth and high Canadian profile, the cultural insensitivity you have displayed in this post gives me pause and no pleasure,” wrote shllclark5.

“Seems a tad bit insensitive. Sure some say we live in a PC world but that’s because we have to!! I am a massive fan of Wayne Gretzky and this just doesn’t seem like something he’d be on board with. Being Canadian, he is well aware of the struggles of native Indians and their struggle for equality. This pic, and others before it, serve no purpose IMO!!!” said the1soyboy.

“Others supported Gretzky, saying that people were taking their analysis of the picture too far.

“They are costumes no different than Halloween. Beautiful photo. Beautiful girls. Stay blessed. No offense taken here. Love from a metis in canada,” wrote missbabesintoyland.

“Beautiful picture of your family , Really focus people and Chill ….everything does not have to be turned into controversy! God Bless you Janet and your family. From a Canadian who loves the Gretsky [sic] family,” gushed nannie_for_ever.”

“Although warbonnets are the best-known type of Indian headdress today, they were actually only worn by a dozen or so Indian tribes in the Great Plains region, such as the Sioux, Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, and Plains Cree.”

“…the headdress worn by most non-natives imitate those worn by various Plains ‘nations’. These headdresses are further restricted within the cultures to men who have done certain things to earn them. It is very rare for women in Plains cultures to wear these headdresses, and their ability to do so is again quite restricted.”

{But in Canadian culture, women aren’t restricted in these ways…and this is Canada…}

“Even if you have ‘native friends’ or are part native yourself, individual choices to “not be offended” do not trump our ‘collective rights as peoples’ {?} to define our symbols.”

{And just who decides these things for your ‘peoples’?}

“Sylvia McAdam, one of the co-founders of the ‘Idle No More’ movement, says,

“Men are ready to give a headdress to a white man (Trudeau) but cause an uproar when indigenous women are gifted one.”

One thought on “‘Save The Gretzkys!’

  1. What a bunch of BS! Aboriginals dress up in western wear all the time and no one complains. Go to any rodeo. It’s more political correctness gone assunder and is absolute crap to say the least. Grow up you idiots that are whining about this and start acting like real Canadian adults instead of trough feeding sponges.
