After a teacher assigned a 5-year-old girl to “dress like an Indian” at school, this mom-daughter duo came up with a way to fulfill the assignment without appropriating Native American culture and while supporting #NoDAPL.

Tremeka Greenhouse says her daughter, Nyemah, originally planned to skip the assignment altogether. After a conversation with her mom, however, they decided they could still do the assignment while showing solidarity with the Native Americans protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Greenhouse says she encourages her daughters to pay attention to the world and speak up when something is wrong.

Tremeka, you are total #momgoals!
