#NotInvisible. I’ve been trying to make this post for forever...actually the amusing part of my tardiness is that the main reason for it is because I (along with the other 80 percent of Native Americans in the U.S. and Canada) suffer heavily from depression. Depression stemming from abuse, specifically...For everyone reading this who knows me should acknowledge the fact that I am half Navajo and am from the Navajo reservation and that this applies to you just as much as the possible other victims trying to find help and solidarity. #NotInvisible is a hashtag popularized by actor Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo posted the message along with the hashtag nearly a 3 months ago and although it has been quite a bit of time passed I still feel the punch of recognition and validation as strongly today as I did seeing it on 11/29/17. I would personally like to thank Mark for his activism and I myself would like to share with you guys the fact that even as a half Navajo woman living in Kentucky that I as a small child was a victim of abuse. I don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed about my experiences but I am ashamed and embarrassed about the complete neglect and ignorance of our Native American women in our School Systems, Media, and Overall Country. We are Not Invisible. We are Writers, Musicians, Teachers, Mothers/Daughters/Sisters and we all deserve to be loved and acknowledged. Thank you and Ahe’hee’. #navajo #notinvisible #zitkalasa #nativeamerican #activism #gertrudesimmonsbonnin #drawing #navajobeads #humantrafficking #indigenous
