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!

Eighth Generation Project Manager Serene Lawrence (Anishinaabe/Hopi) says, "We couldn't be more excited to partner with Jared, an artist that's both grounded in community and shooting for the stars. Together we will highlight a fact that's lost on large companies that profit off of fake Native art - that authentic Native art, artists, and stories add value." The blanket will be among the highest profile of Eighth Generation's 45 blankets, each of which is designed by a Native artist. Check it out here!

Last week, an infographic titled "Why Native People Should Stop Buying Pendleton" went viral on Facebook. As the first Native-owned company to produce wool blankets, we were asked to comment on the content of this post - which was shared at least 10,000 times - by dozens of people and even media. At Eighth Generation, it isn't our style to focus on the negative, so we declined to comment on the content. However, we thought this would be a great time to highlight the positive things we're doing that distinguish us from the competition.
