Duane Howard wasn’t the only person to represent his heritage well during the 2016 Oscars – his date, Chastity Davis, also paid tribute to her mixed heritage of First Nations and European descent at the awards show on Sunday.

The British Columbia-based activist, who does a lot of advocacy work for missing and murdered indigenous women, donned a floor-length wrap dress by Aboriginal designer Bethany Yellowtail of b.yellowtail to the 88th annual Academy Awards. The gown featured original florals ‘designed with love and purpose’ by three former Miss Crow Nations: Teri Lea McCormick, Joree LaFrance and Destiny Bearclaw.

Davis, who is a proud member of Sliammon First Nation, located on the Sunshine Coast in BC, also donned a suede b.yellowtail slip dress with rose beadwork while accompanying ‘The Revenant’ actor at the Armani Pre-Oscars on Saturday. She topped things off with a fringed cape from the same collection. Info and Pic Cred: Madelyn Chung, Editor, HuffPost Canada Style.
