Ashley Callingbull will make history as the very first Indigenous woman to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit edition. Ashley is from the Enoch Cree Nation. In 2015, she was the first Indigenous woman to ever be crowned Miss Universe.
She shared the news on Twitter on International Women’s Day:
