Is it alright to dress as Pocahontas for Halloween?
Not dressing as a native American. But as Pocahontas. A specific disney character.
Yes I understand she was a real person as well. Updates:

Dress as whomever and whatever you want. People that Cosplay as a hobby sometimes dress up in costumes all year round. You can dress up as Pocahontas for Thanksgiving, maybe it would be more relevant to the holiday and theme. Although I wouldn't mind someone dressed as Santa Claus, his Elves, the Easter Bunny or Leprechauns for Halloween. 8-)

You can dress as whatever you want. If people complain, fuck them.
Dressing up - Yes but don't colour your skin if you are not Native Indian that seems to be the thing that causes most offence.
Sure. The real Pocahontas (at least when she allegedly saved John Smith) was about 14 and probably was not built anything like the cartoon version.
People do it all the time
as a person who is about 1/4 native American i feel like it's fine. i have no objection to it
why wouldn't it be? knock yourself out ;)
no, its normal but i just want to dress up like harambe
yeah, sure. Nothing offensive about that.
go ahead, I mean if Disney can make a movie about her then why not.
why wouldn't it be? i don't see why native american's would be offended by that. and even if they are, fuck em. who cares.
'tf? you do know who she was, right?

If you have a Pocahontas costume then yeah ofc. If not I can't guarantee the "cultural appropriation" outrage you'll get, you may get it anyway but if you do just shrug it off and ignore such comments.
Why wouldn't it be? You're appropriating from Disney? Haha jk
Yes! People are way too sensitive. Just don't do anything disgraceful in your costume and you should be good.
Yes just make sure you wear make up and a short dress. Show some cleavage too so people can tell more
It's fine. It's a good costume idea in my opinion.
Yeah it's fine. I dressed up like her for Halloween before.
Go for it, love Pocahontas costumes
Pocahontas was a Native American smh she's a pow something Native American
It is dress up time... yes ! :)
Why dress up as Elizabeth Warren? You're so strange...
Sure. Screw people who don't like it.
No it's not alright especially if you Caucasian.
