Great blog post by a friend about the History of the Ribbon Skirt.
Nicky, this is the sorority I was telling you about.
It is unfortunate that the original founding chapter in North Carolina was started by Non Native ladies who are associated with fake non-recognized claimant groups.
Would be nice to see this organization limit its membership to to actual legit members of Federally recognized Tribes.
It creates a false narrative otherwise.

@illuminative Cleveland will officially change their team name to the Guardians!

Cleveland @indians was the first team to begin the process of eliminating harmful mascots and team names. It’s proof that eliminating the use of Native American imagery in sports is possible. Both Cleveland and @washingtonnfl are proof that it’s not a matter of IF mascots can change, it’s WHEN.

The Kansas City @chiefs, Atlanta @braves, and Chicago @nhlblackhawks must recognize change is inevitable!

Fans, the @nfl, @mlb, and @nhl must urge these franchises to stand on the right side of history.

#TheTimeIsNow to #ChangeTheName.

Schools bar Native students from wearing traditional regalia at graduation 06/21/2021

Schools bar Native students from wearing traditional regalia at graduation

“Preventing Native students from wearing their traditional regalia as they exit the education system reinforces the same messages they’ve often received throughout their education, said Cournoyer.

“You have to look at what the education system is about. And it’s about assimilation. And it’s about acculturation,” she said. “It is not a place that allows us to embrace who we are.”

Schools bar Native students from wearing traditional regalia at graduation Even in school districts like Anchorage, Alaska, that have recently enacted policies allowing Native students to wear traditional regalia at their high school graduation ceremonies, implementation has been uneven due to a lack of understanding of indigenous history and culture.
