Another Stereotype of the Month entry:
Native American Adult Costumes
(This particular category of costumes is no longer available, but you can still search the site for "Indian.")
The problems here are pretty self-explanatory if you visit the site. Lots of common stereotypes are present.
As a "treat," here's a picture of "White Dove" holding a tomahawk. Think about that: a woman "warrior," about to chop someone, named after a dove. Star Design Costumes obviously thought they could have the best of both worlds: a gentle princess and a savage brave all in one.
