Coachella ’14: Rent a $2200 Tipi to Match Your Hipster Headdress

The first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is in the books, and yes, hipster headdresses have been spotted. This isn't shocking — after all, the fad of misusing Native culture is still alive and when when a Victoria's Secret model dons a feather headdress prior to the massive festival, and BuzzFeed sees fit to run an article ("16 Things You Definitely Shouldn't Wear to Coachella") trashing the trend. 

At this year's event, on-site camping includes a tipi (or "tee pee") option; for $2200 you get two general admission passes and a two-person tipi on Lake Eldorado for the weekend. A VIP pass option is also available, for $3100.

Ok, Indians are cool. We get it. We actually already knew it.

On Twitter, where Natives have been keeping an eye out for images from the festival with the hashtags #DontTrendOnMe and #NativeAppropriation, ICTMN contributor Ruth Hopkins @_RuthHopkins recently shared a classic sarcastic Coachella meme:
