Indigenous Women Rise Scarf
Receive a limited edition b.YELLOWTAIL for Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) with a donation to support our work!
Indigenous Women Rise is a partnership between NAP, Advance Native Political Leadership, Native Voice Network, Native Voices Rising, National Indian Women’s Resource Center, UltraViolet, and Continental Network of Indigenous Women of the Americas, North American Region, Indigenous Environmental Network and other key groups working to advance Indigenous issues. The group was invited to join the Women’s March on Washington January 21st, 2017. To show solidarity in messaging and strength in unity, those walking with Indigenous Women Rise chose to wear turquoise scarves and shawls at the national march and sister marches across the country.
Native American designer Bethany Yellowtail for NAP designed a beautiful scarf showcasing the “Shoshone Warbonnet Dance” for the march. According to her site, “In Crow culture and various tribes of the plains region, the Women’s warbonnet dance or “Shoshone Warbonnet Dance” (as depicted in the art) is a ceremony to honor the young leaders of our Indigenous nations. This is the only time a woman is to wear the sacred warbonnet, the dance ceremony is the highest recognition of our mighty Apsaalooke women.”
Those who wish to continue to show solidarity for Indigenous Women Rise can receive a limited edition scarf with a donation that helps to support NAP’s work for Native American youth (Generation Indigenous) and important research that aims to strengthening the health and well-being of our Native communities.
