Haya Ismail of NatiVeil
'The name “NatiVeil” was chosen because it encapsulates the idea of mashing two very different cultures perfectly. “Native” because we are both half Native Americans from the Navajo tribe and “Veil” because we are both veiled, covered Muslim women. We want to showcase how we mix Native American heritage, jewelry, fashion, and lifestyles with that of our Palestinian half and also hope to show that the two are a similar people. There are many stereotypes about both Middle Easterners as well as Native Americans, but we want to break through that barrier, so stay tuned and subscribe to all our channels of social media so that through our posts, we can show you, firsthand what we’re all about.'
