Native Fashion and Sovereignty

In our March 23rd, 2023 "Native Fashion and Sovereignty" event, you'll hear from four Indigenous women who are leaders in design and fashion. They'll explore how authentic Native fashion contributes to Native narrative change, how you can support Native designers and artists, and how Native nations are using their sovereignty to protect Native designs while advancing economic development through fashion.
