3 Indigenous-Owned Cosmetics
Updated May 17, 2019
Indigenous (Native American or native to other countries) and Aboriginal (indigenous of Australia) women have been silenced since the dawn of nations. Beautifully, they are reclaiming their voices and sharing their culture.
We as women need to listen and give way to silenced voices. We know the struggle of being overlooked, underrepresented, and demeaned.
I was ecstatic to learn Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland have become the first Native American women elected to U.S. Congress!!! Sharice wore a viral t-shirt by Reclaim Your Power in one of her campaign ads. It reads, "Strong, Resilient, Indigenous".
Today, I share with you 3 beauty brands that are indigenous-owned!
