What does advocacy for the indigenous community look like 

When advocating for the indigenous community it's important to give indigenous peoples the room and space to speak openly on the issues that they face and the turmoil they endure.

There are ways to help, by starting with educating yourself on the topic of about indigenous cultures, supporting by donating to indigenous non-profits whom are advocating for native peoples and their rights. Shopping at indigenous business, volunteering with indigenous organizations and or supporting public policy that supports indigenous rights.
