Addressing Appropriation: Allyship Through Open-Minded Cultural Celebration

In the short story “First Fruits” by Standing Rock Sioux author Susan Power, a white college student’s open-mindedness to actively exchange and participate with her Sioux roommate's Native culture is depicted as a healing and non-offensive practice. My project seeks to determine the difference between cultural appropriation and celebration to provide a lens for non-Indigenous people to become better educated and more effective allies.
