7 Vegan Indigenous Creators You Should Be Following

Looking for some more inspiring vegans to follow? These Indigenous creators on Instagram are sharing how they practice their cultural traditions while refusing to support industries that exploit animals. For many Native Americans, going vegan is a revolutionary act against the injustice of speciesism. Animal agriculture is also massively damaging to the land, a concern of many land defenders.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
