-Actually, after having a town bicentennial & talking to Indians- they do find it offensive unless someone takes the time to research it & do it right. They were excited we were going to include an Indian segment in our celebration, but were adamant about us researching & doing it the right ways. Exactly such as colors, different feather & headbands.
I'm not saying you shouldn't do it- I think it sounda like an awesome idea. & it is easy to portray it like you should as there is VAST info online about it.
Good Luck! I can't wait to see pics :)

And I am 1/4th Native, and even tho I don't participate in native gatherings and celebrations, part of my family does and its part of who I am. So, yea, I do have some incite on how they would react to someone war whooping. Yes these people are very serious (b/c that's what they have grown up seeing on tv, and NOT trying to be disrespectful, but they also assume that natives are very rare-they arent, and that they can imitate it by watching Peter Pan.)
