There's Never Been a Brand Like Eighth Generation

We are all about Native businesses supporting each other!

Eighth Generation recently teamed up with our local, Native-owned video production company, Sky Bear Media, to illustrate the depth behind our brand. Jeff, Riley and Pat of the Sky Bear Media team helped Eighth Generation’s business values come to life in a snappy edit. Watch the video below!



So, what makes Eighth Generation different from other brands? In short, we’re your ethical alternative to “Native-inspired” art by offering products that are 100% designed by Native artists!

Additionally, Eighth Generation is proudly owned by the Snoqualmie Tribe. This means that local, Indigenous people determine the direction of our small business and make decisions based on cultural values. In other words, our business practices and products are authentic. You are truly supporting Indigenous professionals – Inspired Natives, not “Native-inspired” – and never have to worry about cultural appropriation.

Eighth Generation is also rooted in supporting Native artists and their own entrepreneurial goals. Curious about our artist collaborations? Use our Shop by Artist page to learn a bit about each artist and see their collection of Eighth Generation products. We also have more in-depth features on our blog where you can hear from renowned artists like John Isaiah Pepion (Blackfeet), Michelle Lowden (Acoma Pueblo) and Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe).

Another distinction that elevates us from other brands is our line of Native-made textiles produced in our very own Seattle studios! This growing collection includes soft, 100% Merino wool baby blankets and scarves designed by Native artists across the country. All textiles made-in-studio are finished with a special Gold Label.

Now more than ever, we believe consumers who admire Indigenous art also want to respect it and support actual Indigenous artists. Thank you for backing our tribally-owned company and uplifting Native artists in the process!
