Although she’s much too humble to say so herself, Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe) is a force to be reckoned with. She creates beautiful, intricate beadwork art on moccasins and other products. She also runs ultra-marathons with Kwe Pack, a running group she founded to connect with other indigenous women wanting to make healthy lifestyle changes. In addition, she teaches beadwork to community members. For her art, teaching, and community organizing efforts, Howes was recently named one of the Duluth News Tribune’s “20 Under 40
”. We recently spoke with Sarah to learn more about how working with Eighth Generation has influenced her business.
