Hey, another Oklahoma girl is wearing a headdress. This time it’s probably okay.

The babe pictured above is Mardi Nider. You may be shocked to learn this, but she’s a model. In fact, she may be representing Oklahoma in an upcoming Maxim Hometown Hottie thing. Hard to believe, huh?

Through the Ogle Mole Network, we’ve acquired a couple of pics of Mardi wearing a Native American headdress. Check them out below. When you do, please consider Mardi has Creek ancestry and she’s not Christina Fallin.

When I first saw these pics, two things crossed my mind. The first would be very inappropriate to write on this website. The second was “Is this photo appropriate?” Since Mardi has Native American ancestry and is not a pale entitled white hipster looking for attention, my hunch is that she’s fine. She’s simply paying respects to her ancestry in a very very very attractive, slightly awkward way.

Based on a FB conversation she had with a friend, I bet Mardi agrees:

Well, that’s cool. You gotta love the Ogle Mole Network.

Anyway, who cares what Mardi and I think. Let’s have a poll! Tell us, TLO readers, are those photos of Mardi appropriate. I think they are, but let’s be safe.

Is that photo appropriate?

        • The one on her left forearm looks like the bruise I get when my blood is drawn and is somewhat distracting. The one on her right wrist is barely noticeable, but still – why mess with what already appears to be superficial perfection?

  1. No, it’s really not anymore OK than when Christina Fallin does it.

    It’s a representation of a Plains Tribe headdress, an honor given to those to earned the feathers for bravery or other honorable acts. It’s not a part of Muscogee (Creek) culture, nor is it not a fashion accessory, as it’s being used.

    One’s ancestry does not prevent one from misuse of the headdress or perpetuating cultural appropriation, especially in the vein of continuing the historic dehumanization of NDN women as sexual “mascots”.

    It was stupid when Victoria’s Secret does it, it’s stupid when privileged Hipsters do it, and it’s stupid when Mardi does it, regardless of her ancestry.

  2. Yes, it’s appropriate. The headdress was used by the more attractive members of the tribe with beautiful breasts as both a snow cap and a swim cap which appears to be what is happening in these photos.

  3. I don’t really care when anyone does it. We beat up Fallin because her mom is a douche. Which I thought was dumb. Obviously being selective with our liberal outrage. Slippery slope friends.

      ………….we like to jump on Christina, she’s an easy target and really makes it easy for people to pile on. As I continue to say we have became so politically correct that now all we have is people who hide their true feelings and beliefs. I personally want to know who, or which groups feel about certain things rather than try to guess who the person with the hood on is………just sayin…….

  4. Creek ancestry and she lives in Choctaw…that should give her a pass. And her favorite phrase: “I love beer!”

  5. Meh, the thing that made the Fallin pic worthy of such derision was that they played up the controversy before the controversy even started. Yeah, all of this is cultural appropriation, but honestly most of us aren’t that bothered by cultural appropriation most of the time.

    Fallin and Battles are histrionic assholes that, lacking any real standout talent, have to stoop to low tricks to get the attention and publicity they crave. That’s what was offensive about the Fallin headress pic. Those two are offensive human beings.

  6. She’s also an ordained minister…or is that minister-ess? Either way, she could eat corn-on-the-cob through chicken wire

  7. Only Minnie Hollow Wood can get away with wearing a headdress. This chick should have worn a wolf head. Much cooler.

  8. Immature pictures. Oh, and she’s not as hot as she may think she is! She needs to put some clothes on. She looks ridiculous… oh and I like how she used the “b” word, her Indian ancestors would be so proud! Classless.

  9. Attention PC loving liberals
    Due to recent concerns that any and every item of clothing and or headwear could possibly offend those that are more sensitive than Patricks nipples while looking at pics of Emily Sutton, I will now officially go butt naked for the rest of the week. Please, no pictures. I don’t want to offend any descendants of Neanderthals and their lack of clothing.

  10. The pic is what it is. A hot chick. Feathers or leather, doesn’t matter. Maybe one shouldn’t be on TLO if you don’t what to see some degree of guy stuff.


  11. God, let them off the reservation, next thing they are gonna want to vote and get casinos. They are the most white hater racists ever. Wtf?
