Angry festival-goers took to Twitter over the weekend to air their frustrations after a woman was spotted at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Saturday night wearing a traditional feathered headdress and face paint.

First Nation headdresses are usually only worn during special ceremonies. Even then, the headdress is reserved for a select few people — typically from the indigenous community — who earn the right to don the garment.

That is why some people are now calling on the Winnipeg Folk Festival to ban the wearing of headdresses at the festival going forward.

People at the Main Stage during Saturday night's musical performances saw a woman standing in the crowd wearing one of the traditional head pieces.
