New takes on Indigenous fashion design
Sage Mountainflower (Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, Taos Pueblo, and Navajo) draws from traditional designs for inspiration and applies them to her wearable creations meant to go well past traditional boundaries. Mountainflower is coming off a Blue Ribbon-winning exhibition at the Heard Indian Fair and Market and has a full schedule ahead.

Scott Wabano (Cree) is another Indigenous artist who has an eye for the traditional and a passion for the imaginative and visionary. And Manaola Yap (Kanaka Maoli) is a fashion designer based in Hawaii.

Native America Calling speaks with the artists about the direction of inventive Indigenous fashion.
