I see an awful lot of bitching about what type of people you all get annoyed by at Coachella. Let's break it down.
Hipsters with their arms crossed being too cool to dance.
The Blacks being all Black and stuff.
Those assholes wearing Indian feathers and speedos.
Underage candy kids with their glowing gloves and stupid bracelts
Bros who dance like retards to dubstep and fist bump everyone.

We can dance if we want to
We can leave the hipsters behind
Cause hipsters dont dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine
Those assholes wearing Indian feathers and speedos. See: The Hipster Headdress
ha why just dubstep? cuz im pretty sure ive seen those guys at almost EVERY electronic act. but yea they are the biggest assholes. toss up between them and the little candy kids... i cant fucking stand the gloves. "hey man you want a lightshow?" NO

I thought I was the only one annoyed by the judgmental, hypocritical self-righteousness of hipsters... guess I was right

Where is the "Board members who can't stop bitching about the festival being popular" option? That's who I would choose.
Basically, it's otherization and ultimately objectification of some sort of "exotic" ideal, while ignoring the fact that Natives are real people. Warbonnets are beautiful objects. And, yeah, people can look good wearing them. But, they aren't fashion accessories, nor should they be treated as such.It's just like wearing blackface.
"Playing Indian" has a long history in the United States, all the way back to those original tea partiers in Boston, and in no way is it better than minstral shows or dressing up in blackface. You are pretending to be a race that you are not, and are drawing upon stereotypes to do so. Like my first point said, you're collapsing distinct cultures, and in doing so, you're asserting your power over them. Which leads me to the next issue.
What if, instead of a headdress, it was a mitre? You can bet that a lot of Catholics would be pissed about that. Or if hipster chicks decided it was "hot" to wear a yarmulke and prayer shawl? Pretty offensive, right? It's the same thing.
