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.

DAKOTA 38 - Full Movie in HD 12/26/2021

DAKOTA 38 - Full Movie in HD

Today, December 26, marks the anniversary of the hanging of the Dakota 38 + 2 - the largest mass ex*****on in United States history. This film tells the stories of the riders who continue to honor these relatives and who continually work to heal from this trauma.

“In the spring of 2005, Jim Miller, a Native spiritual leader and Vietnam veteran, found himself in a dream riding on horseback across the great plains of South Dakota. Just before he awoke, he arrived at a riverbank in Minnesota and saw 38 of his Dakota ancestors hanged. At the time, Jim knew nothing of the largest mass ex*****on in United States history, ordered by Abraham Lincoln on December 26, 1862. “When you have dreams, you know when they come from the creator… As any recovered alcoholic, I made believe that I didn’t get it. I tried to put it out of my mind, yet it’s one of those dreams that bothers you night and day.”

Now, four years later, embracing the message of the dream, Jim and a group of riders retrace the 330-mile route of his dream on horseback from Lower Brule, South Dakota to Mankato, Minnesota to arrive at the hanging site on the anniversary of the ex*****on. “We can’t blame the wasichus anymore. We’re doing it to ourselves. We’re selling drugs. We’re killing our own people. That’s what this ride is about, is healing.” This is the story of their journey- the blizzards they endure, the Native and Non-Native communities that house and feed them along the way, and the dark history they are beginning to wipe away.

Nineteen-year-old model Quannah Chasinghorse made history when she became the first Indigenous woman to walk for Chanel this past fashion month, in addition to walking the runways of Chloé, Savage x Fenty, Gabriela Hearst, and Prabal Gurung. But bringing visibility to the Native American community in the fashion community is just one part of her mission. She’s determined to amplify their stories. “There are always Indigenous people showing up, doing the work, and I don’t think we get enough recognition,” she says. “Our voices are constantly being pushed away because people don’t take us seriously. We’ve always been a stereotype, a mascot. We’ve always been not seen as real humans. Being a part of that change and encouraging other Indigenous youth to step up and use our voices, but also to be proud of who we are, is what motivates me. It keeps me wanting to keep doing what I’m doing.” Read her full ELLE January 2022 digital cover interview here: http://ellemag.co/NJ8AzdK
