8 Stunning Photos that Demonstrate the Power of Indigenous Women

March 07, 2018

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!

Three years ago when Eighth Generation became the first Native-owned company to offer wool blankets, we promised that 5% of profit from our retail blanket sales would go back to community. Last year - as a small part of our broader giving - we fulfilled this promise with the launch of an award for emerging Native arts entrepreneurs, administered yearly by our friends at the Evergreen State College Longhouse. For the first of the 2018 Inspired Natives Awards, we were very proud to recognize someone who consistently shows up for the community to do the heavy lifting - Yakama artist and activist Mariana Harvey. Get to know her here!
