Thousands and thousands of women marched together in solidarity or wore turquoise in celebration of the Women’s March and the Indigenous Women Rise movement on Washington on January 21st. One look on social media on Saturday made it clear that initial estimates were underestimated. The hashtag highlighting the efforts of Native women was #IndigenousWomenRise.

In celebration of the efforts of our sacred Indigenous women, here are a selection of posts from the Women’s March that took place all over the U.S and Canada.
