Every kid in school learns about two of the most famous American Indian women: Pocahontas and Sacagawea, both of whom were instrumental in ensuring that the men they were helping survived and prospered. And once little girls learn of these two incredible heroes, they want to be just like them. Why? Because Pocahontas and Sacagawea were so obviously amazing.
Did you know Pocahontas made sure the Englishmen at Jamestown colony survived the winter? And that Sacagawea guided Lewis and Clark from North Dakota all the way to the Pacific ocean with a baby in her arms, no less? That's thousands of miles! Might as well have been a billion miles as they traversed the landscape by canoe and foot. Sure puts your typical road trip into perspective!
So now your little girl wants to dress up just like them. She's interested in history, in the noble tradition of helping those in need, in being a woman of responsibility. Mmaybe some of that Indigenous American history and culture will stick with her long after she's done with the dress. For now, though, you've got a fantastic little lady on your hands, and she will be so thrilled at her magnificent costume.
