Meetup Booklet

Follow along with our meetup by downloading this booklet. This is where you’ll find our Community Guidelines, and Maria P. P. Root’s Bill of Rights for People of Mixed Heritage and Multiracial Oath of Responsibility. We lean on this language as a pillar to create safe spaces for critical conversation. If you want to come extra prepared, take a look at our meetup vocabulary list at the end and explore how you would define each term.

Meetup Discussion

This month, we are coming together to overview the importance of what people wear and how we dress. People first wore clothing to survive and inhabit extreme climates, but this functionality evolved overtime into what we unconsciously consume as trends.
Halloween brings up a larger discussion of what it means to dress up. We are gathering to investigate the difference between costume and sacred garments. The decisions we make when putting clothes on our bodies says a lot about our relationship with and understanding of the world, our own identities, and cultures. There is a lot of meaning in what we wear, especially when it comes to ritual, community and communication amongst groups of people
This meetup will deepen our knowledge about how to respect what is sacred.
DID YOU KNOW?
Adults dressing up for Halloween was made popular in the 1970s by the San Francisco gay communtiy, enlivening Halloween as a holiday of self-expression and liberation.
The different colours, embroidery patterns, length of sleeves, thicknesses of the obi, and amount of layers of a kimono reflect seniority, marriage status, season, and occasion of who is wearing it, as well as the history of Japan.
In some Indigenous tribes the use of eagle feathers was restricted as they were only to be worn by warriors and leaders. Other tribe members would not wear eagle feathers in their headbands.


The Mixed Space is Proud to Present...
