I don’t know how recently, but Club Penguin now has Native American headdresses - or attempts at them rather. I’ve spotted two, the other was more colourful than this one. 
I’m currently writing a letter to them on why this is hurtful and unknowingly racist. I can’t claim first-hand knowledge, and only really know surface stuff about this. Please, if you are knowledgeable about this, write to them too. I’d also appreciate some links as I doubt the ones I’m giving them are the best ones. 
You can contact Club Penguin here.  I’m hoping we can get several people writing to them so it’s not a one-off letter. Please, especially if you have ties to this culture. These are children who don’t let know this is wrong.
I’m going to ask Club Penguin to take these down, refund the penguin’s ‘coins’ used to buy them, and notify them with a short message that this is hurtful to another person’s culture. I think that’s fair (please step in if it’s not completely for whatever reason)
thank you x Feel free to use that picture.
