Adapted from the beautiful "Confluence" Wool Blanket design, these vibrant crew socks are the perfect way to rock bold Tsimshian art on the go!
The Tsimshian people have understood since time immemorial that humans are not separate from the natural world, but merely a part of it. This includes an understanding that there is a human spirit inside all living things. This beautiful design by David Robert Boxley (Tsimshian) represents the powerful and inextricable connection between humans and the world around us, and is a reminder of our responsibilities to care for it all.
These stunning socks are adapted from the original hand-painted "Embrace Your Beauty" earrings created by Inspired Natives Project collaborator, Michelle Lowden (Acoma Pueblo). The vibrant design features a color palette inspired by the orange seashell earrings with turquoise accents commonly found in Pueblo Country.
Adapted from the "Faith" Wool Blanket design, these beautiful crew socks are an awesome way to rock cultural art on the go!
This design from B.YELLOWTAIL is inspired by the Apsáalooke (Crow) name given to Designer Bethany Yellowtail as a young girl: Ammaakeealaachelibaachiilakaacheesh, which translates to “Overcomes through Faith.” This name was given to her by respected Crow elder David Yarlott Sr. It was her family’s wishes that she always be guided, protected, and that prayer be an integral part of her life.
The “Faith” design is an acknowledgment to her name, her family, the people and prayers that have guided her. The hues of pink, blue, and green are specific to the Apsáalooke homelands that Bethany was raised on.
Available for the first time in a miniature version, the popular "Good Day, Bad Day" print depicts Rez Cat stalking a Coast Salish Hummingbird. Today, like every day, is both a good and bad day -- it all depends on perspective.
In 2010, Louie adopted a scruffy-looking wild tabby kitten from the Muckleshoot Reservation, where he was working at the time. On his first night at Louie’s house, an exhausted “Rez Cat” curled up in his new litter box and went to sleep, presumably because he was used to sleeping in dirt and gravel. As Rez Cat got older, he would often stay out all night hunting and leave various “presents” at Louie’s doorstop in the morning. Since then, Rez Cat has been a common subject in Louie’s art (and now has a softer bed to rest on).
The original 18" x 24" painting (spray paint, acrylica and wood stain on wool panel) was featured in "Rebels of the Floating World" at Artxchange Gallery in Seattle's Pioneer Square.
