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:
2mo The fictional character is who I am referring to.

  • 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-)

  • 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.

  • 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.
