I inherited a beaded necklace
I would like to wear, but first let me run it by you: is it racist?

It belonged to my aunt. Most of the other jewelry I have from her was 1970s Avon and similar costume jewelry. Then there's this, which I know nothing about. Is it just a beaded necklace that's Native American influenced? Or is it bad for me, Whitey McWhiteperson, to wear? I mean that in a cultural appropriation way; I'm not looking for opinions on if it's attractive jewelry.
