Thank you for being here! Welcome to A Lakota Woman's Voice (LWV)-In Honor of the Voices Never Heard! I am very excited to bring this to life! I hope that people will enjoy, gain something or be inspired by the things that will be shared on LVW.
My name is Tara Pretends Eagle Weber, I am Hunkpapa Lakota and a citizen of the Standing Rock Tribe in North Dakota. I am a mother, daughter, sister, auntie & great-auntie :) I am a Jingle dress dancer-a healing dance for my people❤ I am also an Adoptee, an AIM baby born during the American Indian Movement. I am the Founder of The Intertribal Warrior Society for Children ❤ dedicated to the safety & health of children.
I am a social worker, journalist/writer, photographer activist & social justice publicist. I have a passion to tell stories, stand for those who cannot & help those in their fight who need it! It is in my blood to tell stories, stand for strong for myself, my son, my family & for others. In these experiences I took pictures, had articles published and showed the world through social media-the beauties of Native America-and the horrific injustices...
I started my site because things are happening so quickly in the world today and it is more important than ever to use our voices! HAPPY READING!
