[Ed. – More of the mind-numbing drivel that allegedly adult editors a “Teen Vogue” are publishing in the hopes of indoctrinating innocent 12-year-olds into believing liberal victimism.]

Earlier this year, we asked model Daunnette Reyome to join us for a photo shoot in our May issue, called “Cultural Appreciation.” Daunnette spoke to us about a lot of things at that time, but most importantly, the sacred feather that her family keeps, and what that means to her.

Now, Daunnette is officially back — but this time, she’s running the show. In our new series, Ask a Native American Girl, Daunnette and her friends tackle the misconceptions that face their culture, and also invite us to take part in what’s going on at Standing Rock.

Here, the girls school us on the REAL history behind Thanksgiving — detailing the genocide of Native American people by the European settlers and American colonists. They also touch on the “Dakota 38” — what’s now known as the largest mass execution in US history, where 38 Dakota men were put to death by Abraham Lincoln.

At the end, the girls all say what they’re thankful for. The resounding theme? That they’re still here — and thriving.
