As a half Native American person
My family and I:

don’t give a shit if you dress as indigenous people on Halloween (as long as it’s not over-sexualized or making fun)

Don’t care if you say you have a “spirt animal”

Aren’t offended when you wear tribal patterned leggings.

Don’t care if you wear feathers on your head or in your hair

As long as you aren’t DIRECTLY disrespecting my culture and people we don’t care. Cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation are very different things and apparently tumblr can’t realize that. If you aren’t making fun of people you aren’t hurting anyone.

And to all those radicals who are about to fight me: by your own beliefs you have no right… This is MY truth and all you white people are the oppressors and can’t speak for me.

I personally like it when people APPRECIATE my culture. It makes me happy that they too enjoy our culture and art and lifestyles ^~^
So you do you and like what you like.

Maria Callas (1923-1977) was one of the most famous opera singers in history. An American of Greek origins, the soprano was renowned for her technique and dramatic interpretations, which gave rise to the nickname La Divina.

She was born in New York, but studied music in Greece, after which she began performing for the Greek National Opera in Athens. She impressed critics and audiences with her powerful and versatile voice. The height of her career was reached in Italy, eventually singing in all the major theatres in the country, particularly the famous La Scala.
