Over the weekend my newsfeed was inundated with photos, videos and updates of the Women's March on Washington, as well as many of the sister marches across the world. It was very inspiring to see my sisters to the South marching in Houston and Austin, Texas. My heart swelled with pride as I saw my sisters to the West marching in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California. And right here in Chicago, one of the largest marches outside of Washington D.C., we had thousands in the streets, not celebrating a World Series win, but making sure their voices will be heard in the new administration.
On Saturday, January 21st, women from all over the country met up in Washington D.C. for the Women's March on Washington, and the Native ladies were represented with the Indigenous Women Rise group. Indigenous Rising Media was there at the event and interviewed people at the march.
Let's all keep the momentum going! Make sure you keep voting in your local races. It's important who you choose to represent you in Washington D.C. Keep writing and calling your tribal leaders, senator, congressman, etc. for issues that are important to you and your community.
