To Change or Not To Change?

These costumes, which were originally designed to honor Australian Aboriginals, had the opposite effect.  The Austrialian Aboriginals were outraged at this representation.  The Russian Ice Dancing team decided to change their original coustumes to avoid offending anyone.  However, Aboriginal groups also claimed that they felt te music and dance were also offesnive since they had nothing to do with Aboriginal cultre or traditions.  The Russian pair has decided not to chage the routine or the music, so at that point do you change your costume?  You're going to offend people either way.... why not just keep your original creative vision in tact?  Or did they do the right thing by at least making a small effort to show the Aboriginal groups that they were really trying to be nice.
