In your article “Why the ‘Native’ Fashion Trend Is Pissing Off Real Native Americans,”
you say: ““paisley”…was once a holy symbol of the Zoroastrians in Persia.”
I’m doing a presentation about cultural appropriation and would like to look further into this, however I cannot find anywhere that it says this was a holy image. Where did you find this information?
Wonderful article. I live in an antebellum neighborhood on the cliffs of Louisiana, Missouri on the Mississippi River. During the Civil War, Fannie McQuie married Col. Senteney, who attended West point, but joined the Confederate forces in Mississippi. While he was gone, Fannie delivered mail across the enemy lines. Later Fannie joined her husband and friends of the 2nd Missouri Brigade preparing for battle at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Cpl. Ephraim McDowell Anderson wrote in his diary about the social event before the battle . . . and concludes with Col. Senteney’s death. I am told that General Grant gave Fannie’s father permission to travel to Vicksburg and to take his grieving daughter home. Marilyn Moss
