Savannah is proudly multicultural as a member of the Navajo Nation in addition to being Black and Xicana. As a student of Mills College in Oakland, CA, Savannah works in the Ethnic Studies Department as the Office Assistant where she coordinates special projects and manages social media outreach. As an active student leader advocating for indigenous women’s rights, Savannah has served as a Chair for the Hawaiian ‘Ohana Club, and as President of the Indigenous Women’s Alliance. Her recently completed senior thesis centered around how Natives’ view their community and cultural connection in relation to their geographic location.

Hi Auntie Manda and Uncle Paige, both my husband and I are native and work in the helping field with Indigenous communities. We wanted to create a presentation piece that can be presented to our volunteers for going above and beyond. I know the teachings of the ribbon skirt but I’m not familiar with teachings of the ribbon shirt. Can you share a teaching that we can offer to go with our presentation piece? Miigwetch, Niawen, Marsii and Thank you. Sharon
