Due to the boarding school standards & stereotypes that followed, I can personally tell you that I was raised to always look your best and cleanest by my grandmother; she didn't want to be known as a "dirty indian." Sadly many young women today have fallen into that Hollywood standard of beauty: blond hair, big breasts, etc. We need to find a way to empower our young girls to love themselves as they are. Native women are considered beautiful for their humility, strength, & integrity, not just their good looks. It's hard to instill that with the peer pressure and media standards kids are subjected to on a daily basis.
