Spirit Halloween LLC: End All Sales of Racist Indigenous Costumes

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


In light of the Truth and Reconciliation’s 94 Calls to Action; Business and Reconciliation, Call 92, Section iii, we the undersigned hereby demand Spirit Halloween LLC, End All Sales of Racist Indigenous Costumes today and prevent any future sales from their stores and online. 

Each year we are faced with the images of “costumes” appropriating Indigenous culture for profit by Spirit Halloween stores, all across Canada, and Halloween 2018 sees no change.  These products are offensive, demeaning and harmful and to all Indigenous peoples. 

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada issued it’s report in December of 2015 and outlines its recommendation to Business Reconciliation in Call to Action number 92, in particular, section iii, which states:

“Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples (Indigenous Peoples), including history legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal-Crown relations.  This will require skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights and anti-racism.”

“In Canada, anti-discrimination legislation exists to protect and advocate for the human rights of Indigenous peoples.  The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Human Rights Act – including the repeal of section 67 – are dedicated to maintaining every individual’s rights under the law.”

Every culture must be recognized and honoured as we seek a path towards reconciliation and ending racism at every level of government, service or business.  

Join us in demanding Spirit Halloween End All Present and Future Sales of Racist Indigenous Costumes from their stores and online.
