heritage wear

August 1 1747 saw the Proscription Act introduced, banning the “Highland Garb” and the carrying of weapons. The penalty for a first offence was six months in jail and a second offence resulted in transportation for seven years.

To understand the act you have to first look at the previous uprisings, the 1715 saw the Disarming Act, which was ineffectual as the vast majority of the arms seized or handed in were rusted or unused, their real armouries were hidden fro the redcoats. Another short lived uprising in 1719 saw the introduction of the 1725 Disarming act “An act for the more effectual disarming the highlands in that part of Great Britain called Scotland; and for the better securing the peace and quiet of that part of the kingdom‘ This time General Wade led the movement and was more successful in seizing weapon but still there were weapons spirited away from the government’s prying eyes and not all were taken from the Highlanders, and those outwith the Highlands too, as it wasn’t just their the act was enforced.

And so to the ‘45. The act afterwards again was about disarming the clans but it went further than the previous laws, it also meant you could not wear the tartan ‘That from and after the first day of August, one thousand seven hundred and forty seven, no man or boy, within that part of Great Briton called Scotland, other than shall be employed as officers and soldiers in his Majesty’s forces, shall on any pretence whatsoever, wear or put on the clothes commonly called Highland Clothes (that is to say) the plaid, philibeg, or little kilt, trowse, shoulder belts, or any part whatsoever of what peculiarly belongs to the highland garb; and that no tartan, or partly-coloured plaid or stuff shall be used for great coats, or for upper coats’ Anyone found breaking these rules could be imprisoned for six months, and, if they were caught again, they could be sent to a plantation overseas for seven years.”

Excluded were soldiers of the realm and the gentry, oh and you may have noticed women weren’t mentioned! The act itself was more about banning the highland dress rather than the tartan, although in some cases there is no doubt over zealous lawmen would set it down by the letter of the law as it was written

During the time that Proscription was in effect, rumours abounded about methods by which Highlanders tried to retain their sense of clan identity – the most well-known in modern times being the ritual of the Kirkin’ o’ the Tartan. According to the legend, Highlanders hid pieces of tartan and brought them to church to be secretly blessed at a particular point in the service. The Highlanders would touch the hidden fabric at a pre-appointed time during the benediction, thus rededicating themselves to God and their Scottish heritage. This ritual is now once again popular, especially in among the diaspora populations of North America, although of course this is no longer performed in secret and instead is seen as a proud way to publicly declare your heritage, while remembering the difficulties faced by previous generations.

The ban was eventually lifted in 1782, due to the effects of the Clearances beginning to take hold in de-populating the Highlands, and because Highland clothing and tartan was no longer seen as a threat. However, within a couple of years, Highland landowners set up Societies with aims including promotion of “the general use of the ancient Highland dress”. Walter Scott was instrumental in encouraging lowlanders to show pride, it was about this time that specific tartans for Clans came about, before this the tartans more or less covered the regions rather than a particular clan, although the two did overlap so it is not always the case.

I sometimes hear people talking disparagingly about how the kilt should be worn, to me there is no set way, wear it how you want, I wear mine with walking boots and either long kilt socks or without, sometimes a Ghillie shirt but not always, others go on about wearing your clan tartan etc, as I said earlier not all tartans wear about your family, so wear a tartan you like, ignore what the snobs say, wear it to be a proud Scot or to remember your heritage, wear it whenever you want, if anyone tells you otherwise they are as bad as those who on this day in 1746 told a Nation that you could not wear your colours, be Proud to be Scottish.

“The Tree of Life represents the world outside of us and the world inside of us. We tend to think of heaven and hell in the physical world only in terms of outside, concrete, materialist. We think of heaven as something above our heads that is very vaporous and vague and light, while hell is something under our feet that is full of fire or ice. Those places exist, but our relationship with them is not determined by our beliefs, the clothes we wear, our heritage, birth, or wealth — rather, it is determined by our state of being, our level of consciousness. In other words, whether we have a physical body or not, our state of being determines the level in which we experience life.”

I'm not so sure i'm super comfortable with your fantasy au post, given that bakugo is portrayed as an angry asshole in the series, and you clothed him in a really indigenous style, like if you were trying to tell everyone he's savage compared to izuku

I’m not so sure if you’re aware that the picture i painted is LITERALLY a canon outfit, and I was in no way trying to imply that he’s “savage” compared to Izuku. I don’t even think like that, even if it was my own design.

I’m not so sure I’m comfortable with the way you viewed my picture, which I think is beautiful, and although looking a bit unfinished, is still well done and accurate. The clothes are exactly like the ones for Katsuki’s Barbarian/Bandit/Berserker outfit in the Manga spread. If you are offended, and have a problem, take it up with the manga artist. Or maybe catch up with the manga, because yes, Katsuki is an asshole, but he is so much more.

My beef about people on tumblr being blind to character development, atonement, and reject any optimism that a douche-munch of a character could even hope to change is a WHOLE other post to write later. 

Don’t turn my really pretty picture into some racist bullshit, because that is not the case. Indigenous people and their heritage are not in anyway savage. Even if Katsuki was dressed in something similar in likeness to traditional/ceremonial wear for first nations people, or perhaps other indigenous tribes across the globe, that would not have even occurred to me that he could be compared to Izuku as a savage. Holy Hell. I would never in my wildest dreams ever try to send that message. If I wanted him savage, i’d give him a loin cloth, some pelts, and have him lost in a jungle with no human contact or something.

Also, I have no idea where you’re from, but as an example, in BC, first nations traditional clothes are beautifully embroidered dresses, head dresses, wraps, and jackets, and skilfully carved and crafted jewelery. There’s elements of nature: IE feathers and furs, and more- and the imagery that is both embroidered on these articles of clothing and painted are very obviously depicting their culture and heritage. 

What Katsuki is wearing…. is some beaded necklaces, a harness, a cape, and some run of the mill cargo pants, knee pads, and boots. Just because people throw some beads, and a fur lined cape on a character, does not make it indigenous clothing. Please, be uncomfortable about something else…

If you wanna be uncomfortable about something, you should learn about “Mink” from dmmd… now that’s something…

Now, i’m sorry for maybe coming off as rude or some shit, but my lord. Katsuki is a Barbarian king and he saved Izuku, and Izuku’s like, “Woah man, you’re fuckin’ pretty”. It’s not like Katsuki would have had a fancy tailor or clothes made by the kingdoms. They hunt animals, wear em, and steal shit from caravans. 

rootedtreeservices  asked:

hey idk if any of you have seen the bodak yellow mv but is there a specific word dealing with the way arab culture and stuff is used for aesthetic in it?

I watched a little bit of it just now because I’m not a fan of hers, did a quick search, and found this article. To be clear I only skimmed the article but this specific excerpt I read fully, which I found interesting and may be of interest to you and/ or other followers. Bolded emphasis is mine if you don’t wanna read the article/excerpt. 
I also agree with the author that while this seems like orientalism, it doesn’t make any sense considering her heritage, so it seems more like her own expression of that and I don’t think she’s doing anything that would call for labeling it any type of appropriation or horizontal aggression.. -Bojin

In the “Bodak Yellow” music video, Cardi is in Dubai, surrounded by hookahs, strolling on a camel in a green kaftan with a face beat for the gawds. Sometime between when the video dropped and when “Bodak Yellow” went viral, conversations about appropriation sprung up, and those arguments are faulty at best. Dr. Suad, an associate professor at Purdue University told Splinter News: “The person who appropriates is usually a more powerful person, and they can take it and remake it into something else. Is Cardi B powerful? Maybe as an American, but she’s also a black woman, and in the Arab community here and elsewhere she’s disempowered.”

Cardi B is an Afro-Caribbean woman. She is of Dominican and Trinidadian heritage, and she wears that with pride. There is no doubt that this video has orientalist imagery and even then, non-black Arabs don’t have a monopoly on wearing kaftans, camels or deserts, and these discussions on her appropriation also dismiss how Dominican people may want to connect to their Andalusian roots.

Margari Aziza, the co-founder of the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative said it best in her tweet: “I need some folks to address their own culture’s depiction of Africa and exploitation of Africans before writing thought pieces on hip-hop.” The greatest irony in all of this is that parts of North and East Africa are considered a part of “the orient” making the majority of these analyses superficial at best. Not to mention, the writers that wrote about Cardi’s “orientalism” problem never spoke up about how a plethora of non-black artists appropriate black culture, and if they have, they mentioned it in passing in these think pieces about Cardi to acknowledge that it is in fact a problem in their community.

What they didn’t do was write full-fledged think pieces (I checked) about how French Montana hasn’t decided what race he is, or the problem with him dancing with black children in his “Unforgettable” video. Instead, what we witnessed was a lot of people using the same language they learned from black women to dissect how Cardi B is problematic.



From Vivi: This is a special look because it’s what we wore to my parents 25th wedding vow renewal in June.  The theme was Mexican chic, so finding the inspiration for the look was easy.

We wear their heritage, their sacred totems, as decoration and in fashion trends, failing to honor their culture. Headdresses, feathers, arrows. Moccasins, sage, beadwork,” [Shailene Woodley] wrote, adding, “You know what I’m talking about, Coachella. Walking around the flea market this weekend, I can’t even tell you how many native references I saw being used in a way that feeds our western narrative.

I was arrested on Oct. 10, on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a holiday where America is meant to celebrate the indigenous people of North America.

I was in North Dakota, standing in solidarity, side-by-side with a group of over 200 water protectors, people who are fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline.

People who carry a rainbow of colors on their skin. People who gathered together because they realize that if we don’t begin taking genuine steps to protect our precious resources—our soil, our water, our essential elements—we will not have a healthy or thriving planet to pass on to future generations.

I was in North Dakota, standing side by side with Native Americans.

You know, those who were here before us.

Well, guess what, America? They’re still here.

And they are still fighting the good fight. A fight that serves each and every one of us.

They are still putting their lives on the line to protect the roots that feed our existence.

And, guess what else, dear America? They are still being ignored.
We are still throwing them in jail.
We are still silencing their dedication to protect us from the planetary consequences that will catastrophically bleed from our ignorance.

We wear their heritage, their sacred totems, as decoration and in fashion trends, failing to honor their culture. Headdresses, feathers, arrows. Moccasins, sage, beadwork. You know what I’m talking about, Coachella. Walking around the flea market this weekend, I can’t even tell you how many native references I saw being used in a way that feeds our western narrative.

We buy plastic teepees from Toys-R-Us and set them up in our living rooms for children to play in.

We grow up romanticizing native culture, native art, native history… without knowing native reality.
Somehow, we’ve allowed 200-plus years to go by without questioning the western truth we have been told to believe about Native Americans.

And now, in 2016, in the day and age of exciting technology, which empowers revolution and curiosity, we are still blindly (or maybe not) allowing 200 years of unjust history to continue.

We are allowing Native American voices to be swallowed by the white noise of distraction.

Doesn’t this sadden you, America?

When we talk about marginalized communities in our country, we do not (on a mainstream level) include Native Americans.

When we talk about sex trafficking in our country, we do not (on a mainstream level) include Native Americans.

And when we talk about governmental integrity, we do not (on a mainstream level) include Native Americans.

Treaties are broken. Land is stolen. Dams are built. Reservations are flooded. People are displaced.

Yet we fail to notice. We fail to acknowledge. We fail to act.

So much so that it took me, a white non-native woman being arrested on Oct 10th in North Dakota, on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, to bring this cause to many people’s attention. And to the forefront of news publications around the world.

The day I was detained, 26 others had to dress in orange as well, as they were booked into the Morton County jail. Did you hear about them?

Twenty-six men and women who put their livelihoods on the line, to protect their children, your children and my future children.

Twenty-six men and women who realize that millions of people depend on the Missouri River for drinking water.


And, you guessed it, you may be one of them. Did that catch your attention?

When the Dakota Access Pipeline breaks (and we know that too many pipelines do), millions of people will have crude-oil-contaminated water. I know it is easy to be apathetic or detached from the reality that fossil fuel contamination could actually affect you and the ones you love… But hear me loud and clear: If you are a human who requires water to survive, then this issue directly involves you. Don’t let the automatic sink faucets in your homes fool you—that water comes from somewhere, and the second its source is contaminated, so is your bathtub, and your sink, and your drinking liquid. We must not take for granted the severity of this truth.

Listen up, America:

The reason we were freezing our a—es off on Oct. 10 in peaceful protest was because the night before (mind you, right after the presidential debate and on the eve of Indigenous Peoples’ Day—coincidence?) the U.S. Court of Appeals denied an injunction to halt construction of the pipeline. As in: They began building once again.

Whatever your cause is. Whatever your passion is. Whatever you care about most… none of your efforts or hard-earned opinions will matter when the planet and the people you’re fighting for have nothing left to show for it.

The Dakota Access Pipeline, my friends, is not another time to ignore, mistreat and turn a blind eye to Native Americans. But it is time to guarantee the safety of Manhattan—despite the soon-to-be-fueled gas pipeline called AIM. (For all of you in the tri-state area, this is being built under a failing nuclear plant. Fukushima only happened five years ago. This plant is just about as far from Manhattan as the U.S. government told Americans to keep away from Fukushima to protect them from a worst-case scenario. Look it up and do something about it.) We have the technology for renewable energy, and it’s up to us to begin utilizing.

I appreciate all of you out there who supported me while I was arrested. I am humbled and grateful for your love, your prayers and your hashtags.

And what could it look like if we learned from this instance, where it took myself getting detained to raise awareness about Native Americans? What if we used it as a catalyst for a full societal shift in the way we start thinking and treating and learning from indigenous peoples? So that in the future, it doesn’t require a non-native celebrity to bring attention to the cause.

What if we took the hashtag #FreeShailene and made it #ProtectCleanWater, or #HonorNativeTreaties, or #IStandWithStandingRock?

What if we don’t let this stop trending on social media, at our dinner tables, in the streets? What if we wake up to the possibilities of noticing, of choosing and of acting on our awareness?

What if we take the time to understand the dynamics of what is at risk here?

Will you choose money, or will you choose children? Will you choose ignorance, or will you choose love? Will you choose blindness, or will you choose freedom?

I am not scared. I am not afraid. I am grateful, and I am amazed to be standing by the sides of so many peaceful warriors. Standing Rock “protests” are rooted in ceremony and in prayer. I’ve been there. And all these narratives about riots? Just watch my Facebook livestream and decide for yourself who looks more dangerous: police in riot gear with batons, or native grandmothers and children smudging sage and singing songs.

Thank you, to all the tribes who have gathered. To all the nations standing as one. To all the people who know that if not we, then who? And if not now, then when?

Simply feeding off the hype of a celebrity’s arrest ain’t going to save the world. But, standing together will. Please stand in solidarity with the Sioux people of Standing Rock Reservation to ensure that we still have rivers to swim in, springs to drink from and lakes to float on. Will you join us?

Mni wiconi. Water is life.

Because I’m in too deep now. Laughing Boar with his daughter, Ylwyda.

Though taking more after his Mother, Laughing Boar was given a Hellsguard name because their Native Hellsguard Father was very insistent. Despite his Seawolf appearance, he feels it’s a celebration of his heritage and wears his name proudly.
He tried his hand at adventuring but after Ylwyda was born, decided that joining the Fishers guild may be a little more appropriate for a lifestyle choice. Though he still manages to make fishing something dangerous.
He tries his best to include Ylwyda in his interests and activities but he’s not very good at connecting with her. He enjoys adventure, excitement and danger and she’s not really interested in any of it. Though she does like the smaller, cuter fish he catches, it’s a start.

Ylwyda is a girly girl through and through. She loves dresses and dolls though sometimes her rough tough Roegadyn roots show through the cracks, she can often forget her own strength in comparison to some of her smaller peers.
She has a gentle soul much like Beefy, and he encourages her to pursue the things she enjoys, she’s currently learning about botany so she can grow lots of pretty blue flowers.
