INSPIRED NATIVES, NOT “NATIVE-INSPIRED”

THE INSPIRED NATIVES PROJECT

The Inspired Natives Project, launched by Louie Gong in May 2014, is both a business initiative and an educational initiative.  By collaborating with select arts entrepreneurs to manufacture products under the Eighth Generation brand, we hope to expand regional appeal of the Eighth Generation brand while simultaneously increasing the capacity of the arts entrepreneurs and educating the public about the tangible costs of cultural appropriation.
