This is an incredibly hard question. Indigenous women are murdered at 10x the national average, not to mention the other traumas done to Indigenous women on the daily. I could pass in white spaces easier than other indigenous women but I’ve experienced A LOT of racism in my life. There’s so much hard work in parenting a bi-racial family and trying to maintain cultural awareness & heritage. I wish other mothers knew there’s so much about “trending” parenting styles actually are indigenous practices, and that they would go to indigenous educators for help.
The true history. American schools teach a white-washed-savior version of history. There’s so much more that most people don’t know. Teach your children about the true history of the attempted genocide of indigenous peoples. Teach yourself and them about Residential Schools & how they were children THEIR age. Teach them about MMIWG. About the Dakota 38. About how wrong forced assimilation is & really what it looks like. So that my bi-racial kids & other indigenous children are able to know they’re precious & not called names at school. 🤎
