Today's topic in indi_issues is how indigenous people look. I posted these pics of hula dancers. Notice that over the years Hawaiians have become even more covered up which I think is wrong. Therefore I urge ALL competitors at the Merrie Monarch Festival to dance in the nude and/or partially nude. The day that they do that as well as the day that they don't charge admission is the day that I will give the Merrie Monarch Festival my stamp of approval haha Anyway here are the pics so that you can see what has happened over the years:

Hula dancers in 1890:






Hula dancers in 1930:







Hula dancer in 1945:






Hula dancers today:






Of course I am only joking about being naked but it's interesting when you see this transformation in pictures. Of course there is hope. Here is a pic of my nephew, a Hawaiian, who is half naked hehe:

As you know, with the hula, the outfits can definitely represent the time period in which the composition was written. So as for the bottom one, I'm not sure which halau that is but...

Fetish Ball? You know, I wouldn't mind going to one, and I know there are people of all body shapes, but I want to shape up for it before I even dare enter one of those. Are you wearing a fishnet bodystocking of some sort?

you know the sad thing, is that if hula returned to it's original state of nudity..it would be viewed as a sexual manner. But hey maybe, it would be a good way to wean out all the non-hawaiians who claim to be hula dancers. It is an amazing contrast though.
