Hello! It's that time of year, right before the holidays, during #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth when I share a list of gift ideas that support Indigenous people/organizations.

First, WHY support these organizations?
I'd love to tell you.
One of the best ways to fight destructive stereotypes of Native people is to recognize that we are still alive today, still creating, still working.

Instead of buying things about us or "inspired by us" (like Target pillows), buy directly from us. Support our work.
What better time to fight against those stereotypes than around Thanksgiving?

So here is a list of amazing ways you can put your money into Native communities and support Indigenous peoples and our important work.

Let's get started!

#NativeAmericanHeritageMonth means a ton of non-Natives are out here showin their ass in attempting to “honor” Native Americans. I’ll definitely be publishing a reflection on what weirdness I’VE incurred already this month. But here are some basic tips for curious white folk:
Tip: Educators, NO you should absolutely NOT be teaching children or teens how to make #dreamcatchers. Unless you are an Indigenous Ojibwe teacher in a tribal school setting, get your white mitts off! It’s. Not. For. You.
Here’s @NativeApprops
Tip: If you want (for some likely inappropriate reason) to connect to Native ppl and culture, do the damn work. Learn about colonialism through the lens of Indigenous ppl. Find yourself an ethnic studies/Native studies syllabus and READ.
