I feel that there is no issue with Halloween costumes. I feel that the reason that this Cowboys and Indians party caused such an issue because of the recent development with the "Idle no more" Movement. The attention that that has gained has caused people to realize that they can fight for something and with this new found power, they are willing to fight for anything. Sociologically, people will often go out of their way to fit in. By joining a cause that they once had no involvement with, these people feel that they have become a part of something and that they now have an obligation to stand up for that. There are, without doubt, issues with racism and the Native community has a large amount of struggles. But those struggles are not limited to the Native community.
