Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian has sparked outrage online after sporting a traditional Native American headdress to her niece's lavish birthday bash.

Kim Kardashian celebrated her daughter North's first birthday by throwing a festival-themed party in the grounds of her sister's California mansion.

The event included teepees and a ferris wheel, and Khloe got into the spirit by posing for several snaps in a huge feathered bonnet.

One snap featured her sitting in front of a teepee, and she wrote the caption: "Ray of clouds. Chirping of birds. Gurgling of water. Granting desire. One with water."

However, the snaps prompted a backlash from Kardashian's followers on Instagram.com, with several slamming the star for making light of a cultural tradition.

The 29-year-old is not the first celebrity to come under fire for wearing a Native American headdress - Pharrell Williams apologised earlier this month after he donned one on the cover of Britain's Elle magazine, and One Direction's Harry Styles also faced a backlash in March, when he shared a photo of himself wearing a similar piece on his Instagram.com blog.
