Re: “Burners Torched Over Native Party

I think both “sides” should be commended for how they handled the situation. From my point of view, a conflict arose between two groups and they resolved it through pro-active discussion, diplomacy, and walked away with more understanding of the issue. Isn’t that the ideal solution for conflicts? Hats off to both groups.

Personally, I also thought the writer’s tone was very patronizing towards the “Burners”. Nearly 50,000 people from all over the world attend Burning Man and it’s becoming more of an international gathering each year. Visionary Village is one camp out of thousands of other theme camps at the festival. There really isn’t a convenient stereotype for a “Burner” anymore. One of my most memorable experiences at Burning Man was seeing an old couple retake their marriage vows in front of their family.

For the record, I am an Asian female immigrant who grew up dirt poor with parents who didn’t understand English in the ghetto parts of Oakland in the 80s and I’ve been to Burning Man 5 times.
