4. This is wonderful, Liberal_in_LA!

Though she is extremely proud of the color guard, Baker says that is not all that the group is about. The Native American Women Warriors’ mission statement states: “We are dedicated to surfacing the recognition of women veterans, especially those of Native American descent, and their contribution to the military that represented our indigenous people and the United States of America.

Our goal is to assist our Native American women veterans in receiving the help desperately needed to empower themselves in order to take on modern challenges in: transitioning from the military to civilian sector, housing, education, employment, VA benefits awareness, domestic violence, locating child care and any other needs our Native American women veterans may have. We also aim to empower our women with a powerful mind, body and spirit.”

10. The dresses are known as "jingle dresses" because they jingle

when the wearer moves!

11. I very much enjoyed them in the parade...

I saw several native American nations, immediately having feelings of awe and respect.
