#MMIW Campaign

Yá'át'ééh Ladies and Gents, @jolievarela Founder of @indigenouswomenhike and myself @jaylyn.gough Founder of NWW humbly ask for your support. We both did extensive research of an organization to support through the t-shirt proceeds and discovered @niwrc who assists to uphold our women and girls. We encourage you to explore their services. Not only do they work with the #MMIW campaign, but in so many other areas to ensure our women and girls are safe in all matters and provides resources to help them through difficult situations. #MMIW is a campaign very close to our hearts, through personal experiences, and the love for our People. Red is the official color of the #MMIW campaign, but it goes deep and has significant value. In various tribes, red is known to be the only color spirits see. It is hoped by wearing red we can call back the missing spirits of our women and children, so we can lay them to rest. Through our amazing artist, @the_tactician and editor, @warpartypictures we chose a Turquoise teardrop earring to represent our sorrow and tears. Turquoise is often worn by many tribes to ward of evil spirits (worn for protection), but also as a symbol of strength and prosperity. May our women and children prosper and be kept safe. You can reach the website in our bio section. Blessings to you! Ahéhee
