I'm Louie Gong (Nooksack) and I'm the founder of Eighth Generation. I'm a self-taught artist who was raised by my grandparents in the Nooksack tribal community in northwest Washington. I got my start by painting cultural art on shoes, but realized that creating one-of-a-kind pieces did not provide a sustainable pathway to success, so I began applying my artwork to accessibly-priced products. My unique style merges traditional Coast Salish art with influences from my mixed heritage and urban environment to create work that resonates widely across communities and cultures.
David Robert Boxley (Tsimshian) comes from the village of Metlakatla, Alaska, growing up there and in Kingston, Washington. He first began to learn how to carve from his father, renowned Tsimshian artist and culture bearer, David A. Boxley, at the age of six. He has since studied under Master Haida carver, Robert Davidson, and, after moving away for a period of time, has returned to live in his village to help in the efforts to save his people's language. He is now the Co-chair of The Haayk Foundation, which works to preserve and revitalize Tsimshian language, history, and traditions.
Boozhoo (Hello)! My name is Sarah Agaton Howes, and I am an Anishinaabe-Ojibwe artist, teacher, and community organizer from the Fond du Lac Reservation in Minnesota. Widely known for my handmade regalia and moccasins featuring Ojibwe floral designs, I own and operate my own business, Heart Berry, to share contemporary Ojibwe art. I work to build a strong community by teaching about our cultural art, such as moccasins and beadwork, and creating tools like books and tutorials for Makers.
My name is Michelle Lowden, and I am an Acoma Pueblo artist living and working in Pueblo of Acoma (known in my Keres language as Aa’ku) in New Mexico. I draw my inspiration from my family's history of illustrious potters to create the beautiful hand-painted Pueblo jewelry I am known for. The owner and operator of Milo Creations, you can see how my careful eye and attention to detail show in the intricate line work and Southwest geometric designs of my work. Fun fact: I became Eighth Generation's first Inspired Natives™ Project Collaborator in 2014!
My name is John Isaiah Pepion, and I am a Plains Indian graphic artist from the Piikani Band of the Blackfoot Confederacy. I'm based out of the Blackfeet reservation in north-central Montana, where the Rocky Mountains meet the plains. I am best known for my ledger art, which is an art tradition that developed in Plains tribes: as the buffalo hide we traditionally used for painting became scarce, Plains people were forced to adapt by making artwork on ledger paper from accounting books. I come from a family of artists, and ledger art has been in my family for hundreds of years.
