Moore accused Sidora of “cultural appropriation” on social media for dressing “as an Indian for Halloween” in the past.
According to Page Six, Sidora clapped back stating: “In this climate of addressing diversity, I am happy to put a spotlight on my indigenous background from my maternal side of the family” denying that her attire was cultural appropriation. “According to my mother, I am part of the Choctaw Native American Tribe, and my great-grandparents grew up and lived in Coushatta, Louisiana, all their lives.”
“In fact, in 2011, my family returned to our family roots of Coushatta, Louisiana, for a family reunion and celebration in which the theme was ‘Our Branches Stretch Wide, But Our Roots Go Deep.’ During this time, I inherited an authentic ‘tribal garment’ and wore it to our family celebration.”
Kenya most likely lashed out as Andy Cohen recently questioned Moore during the reunion about an offensive Native American costume she wore on this season’s Halloween episode that ignited controversy. Moore later apologized stating: “It was such a bad mistake on my part because if I have this heritage, I should have known better.”
“In Drew’s case, she dressed as an Indian woman for Halloween also, so it would be nice instead of pointing a finger to say, ‘Yes, we all have made these mistakes and let’s all try to do better because now we know better,’” she added.
Part 2 of the RHOA season 13 reunion airs Sundays at 8 pm EST on BRAVO.
