These Girls Tackle 6 Misconceptions About Native Americans

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown November 29th, 2016 Last Updated on: November 29th, 2016

Kudos to Teen Vogue for these recent videos with Native American teens talking about their lives and culture. Recently they had two girls talk about the issues surrounding Standing Rock and just last week several of them tackled the topic of Thanksgiving.

In this latest video Laurel Cotton, Duannette Reyome, Evannah Moniz-Reyome, Kiera Thompson, Wacantkiya Mani Win Eagle, and Wanbli Waunsila Win Eagle all talk about popular misconceptions that most of you are all too familiar with. Just watch and see if you can't relate.

I hope to see more videos from these young ladies!

I enjoyed the misconceptions about indians,however, I am proud of being a Redskin! I am Yankton Sioux. And yes: they have the “Cowboys ” and the “Patriots “! Be proud of purchase heritage – everyone claims to have a great great grandma who was a Cherokee Indian princess ?
