8 Stunning Photos that Demonstrate the Power of Indigenous Women

March 07, 2018 1 Comment

This International Women's Day, Eighth Generation is celebrating indigenous women everywhere - from the matriarchs in our families and communities to our incredible Inspired Natives Project Collaborators, Michelle Lowden (Acoma Pueblo), Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe), and Michele Reyes (Diné).

 

Sarah Agaton Howes created her Medicine Dress Phone Case as a symbol of the strength, healing, and power of women

We were honored to host Missing and Murder Indigenous Women Washington (MMIWW) at our Pike Place Market store in January, where they spent the day stamping bandanas with their logo and preparing to lead the Seattle Womxn's March with the indigenous women's contingent. Through the use of our space, and our financial and wool blanket donations, we were proud to be considered MMIWW's primary sponsor for the event!

Check out these 8 stunning photos from the Seattle Womxn's March, captured by Crow photographer Adam Sings in the Timber, that show the incredible power and grace of Seattle's indigenous women!

Check out this awesome exhibition! This project features five indigenous artists who each received a stipend to make a blanket. The goal of the project is to spark a discussion about the significance of the blanket in NW Native culture (past and present) and will be held on May 25th at the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland Longhouse. Each artist has created a new piece of artwork for this gathering in May that is inspired by the concept of the blanket!
