A flashmob! It’s the latest craze… from YouTube to the University of Winnipeg.
Dab your face with some warpaint and put a feather in your hair. A critical mass of Indigenous Peoples assembled to join forces with The Ephemerals:Trending performative embedments. People of all ages rallied together and walked the campus donning Indigenously-inspired accessories and clothing whilst following the beat of pow wow drum on the ipod-blaster. The trends of mob walkers and students collided, speaking volumes to these strikingly similar new fall fashion trends. Conversations were shared as to the inspiration of each look and the legacy of their acquisition. It was at once a bizarre mix of performance, gathering and protest.
