Native Fashion Now: Critical Conversations (Part 1) says
A two-part series moderated by Deana Dartt, Ph.D, Curator of Native American Art; in conversation with:

Eden Dawn, Fashion Editor, Portland Monthly
Sam McCracken, General Manager, Nike N7
Erik Brodt (Ojibwe) and Amanda Bruegl (Oneida Nation & Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican), Founders, Ginew

Native Fashion Now highlights the incredible work of individual contemporary Native designers across North America while touching on the complexities of how Native American designs have been appropriated by mainstream culture over time. The Northwest has a rich history of independent and Native-owned companies like Eighth Generation, as well as larger companies such as Nike and its N7 Fund that are deeply engaged with these issues. This conversation series will bring together different regional design voices to offer personal reflections on what terms like “Native-inspired” mean within the Northwest and larger fashion world.
