Cartoon: Indigenous representation is essential

Mattel’s latest release, the Wilma Mankiller Barbie from the Inspiring Women Collection, marks a great stride in promoting diversity. This Barbie pays tribute to Wilma Mankiller, the first female principal chief of the Cherokee Nation who advocated for Indigenous and human rights. Cherokee Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. praised Mattel for this representation by emphasizing Barbie’s ability to ignite the limitless potential in girls, especially those from Indigenous communities. The release is a nod to the importance of having diverse role models to shape the aspirations of the next generation. (Emma Yin)
