Kim Kardashian and Kanye West celebrated their daughter’s first birthday by throwing North West a huge backyard festival-themed party dubbed Kidchella.

North West First Birthday Party #Kidchella 2014

North turned 1 last week on June 15, barely a month after West and Kardashian tied the knot in Italy. Compared to the European wedding festivities, which included fireworks at the Palace of Versailles in Paris and a honeymoon in Ireland, North’s first birthday party was a much more laid back affair.

Hosted by Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian, the party took place in their 1.8 acre home and large backyard. The couple’s huge lawn was decorated with a giant Ferris wheel, a bouncy house and a karaoke stage for the Kidchella performances. Kidchella, of course, is a play on the famous Southern California music festival, Coachella.

North’s youngest aunts, Kendall and Kylie Jenner enjoyed the karaoke stage, posting multiple videos of themselves dancing to Instagram. “We have way too much fun at children’s parties,” wrote Kendall.

In keeping with the music festival theme, many guests were encouraged to wear boho chic outfits, and the Kardashians went with a Native American theme for the party as well, with teepees scattered around the lawn. Children were treated to custom made Yeezuz t-shirts, moccasins and headbands.

Meanwhile, North West was decked out in a full Pocahontas-style outfit, wearing a tan-colored, fringed dress, knee-high gladiator sandals and a floral crown.

To top it all off, Kardashian and West posed with their daughter as she blew out her first birthday candle. Kardashian shared a photo of the family of three looking happily at North’s tie-dye birthday cake.

Khloé Kardashian Poses In Native American Headdress

While the entire Jenner-Kardashian clan was busy sharing photos and videos of the big event on Instagram and Twitter, one particular photo stirred up quite a bit of discussion. Khloé Kardashian shared a photo of herself sitting in front of a teepee wearing what appears to be a huge Native American headdress with the caption, “Ray of clouds. Chirping of birds. Gurgling of water. Granting desire. One with water. #Kidchella my first Coachella!!!”

Fans were quick to comment on Khloe’s decision to wear a traditional Native American headdress, something Pharrell Williams recently apologized for. Some attacked Khloe for being a “racist” and “misappropriating” Native American culture, while others defended the reality star, pointing out that it was a prop at a birthday party and guessing she meant no harm.

“You are absolutely RIDICULOUS mocking Native culture. Seriously, do your research, Natives in the US live in some of the worst conditions possible, and then there’s people like you misappropriating their culture to make a fashion statement. Seriously, go educate your ingnorant dumb—s self,” wrote @mayraascheme.

“really…smh you would think celebrities would know by now that this is racist. But I guess not since you guys live in a fantasy world filled with money and forget about peoples feelings,” wrote @_clarahenson.

“Sure it’s questioning why these religious things are being worked into fashion statements, but I’d rather see people wear this stuff because it ‘looks cool’ rather than wearing them to mock an entire ethnicity or religiou for being who they are. That’s something to rage about. What people should do if they decide to wear these religious symbols as a fashion statement is EDUCATE THEMSELVES on what they’re actually doing,” wrote @jalynleblanc.

Kylie also posted a photo featuring Khloe in the headdress, which is being spammed in the comments.
