Adapted from the vibrant neon sign outside our Pike Place Market store, this t-shirt features Louie Gong's signature hummingbird design.
This Coast Salish Hummingbird design was originally hand-drawn by Louie on a traditional hand drum made for a friend. Often thought to be a harbinger of good news, the hummingbird is the perfect symbol to represent people who bring positivity to others.

Louie Gong (Nooksack), founder of Eighth Generation, is a self-taught artist who was raised by his grandparents in the Nooksack tribal community in northwest Washington. He got his start by painting cultural art on shoes, but realized that creating one-of-a-kind pieces did not provide a sustainable pathway to success, and began applying his artwork to accessibly-priced products. Louie’s unique style merges traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his mixed heritage and urban environment to create work that resonates widely across communities and cultures.
