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!
