Eighth Generation

Eighth Generation is a Native-owned and operated company based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2008 when Louie Gong (Nooksack/Chinese/French/Scottish) -- a Native artist, activist and educator widely known for merging traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his urban environment to make strong statements about identity -- started customizing shoes in his living room. Now the first Native-owned company to ever produce wool blankets - and set to open a flagship retail store in Seattle's iconic Pike Place Market in late summer 2016 - Eighth Generation is a proud participant in the global economy with the mission of creating opportunities for community-based cultural artists who, like Louie a short 8 years ago, struggle to meet demands for handmade cultural art.  Read Louie's Bio.
