Native-owned fashion brands are on the rise. More and more Native designers are receiving long-deserved international attention for their work while continuing to push back against the fashion industry’s history of cultural appropriation, racism, and exclusion.

Join us for Native Fashion and Sovereignty to explore how authentic Native fashion contributes to Native narrative change. We’ll share how you can support Native designers and artists, and we’ll also examine how Native nations are using their sovereignty to protect Native designs while advancing economic development through fashion.
