“Also, in many countries, Americans who refuse to partake in cultural activities or traditional dress out of fear of appropriation are seen as snobbish and entitled.” Seriously though. SERIOUSLY, ESPECIALLY IF THERE ARE OLDER GENERATIONS AROUND. BE CAREFUL ABROAD.

Preeeetty sure if you’re invited by members of that culture to partake of their activities with them it’s not appropriation, it’s having it shared with you for that day. So yeah, Tumblr, partake if you’re invited, there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s also nothing wrong with asking if you’re welcome to join in.
