Seeing as how today is Indigenous Peoples’ Day, there’s no better day than this to get to know a few Indigenous brands. Jewelers like Keri Ataumbi, for instance, are fusing luxurious stones or diamonds with traditional materials (Ataumbi uses materials such as porcupine hair). Beauty brands such as Cheekbone Beauty and Ah-Shí beauty are offering eye palettes, lip gloss, and more (10% of Cheekbone Beauty’s profits are donated to Shannen’s Dream and the This is my Quarantine Christmas Pajama sweater – Copy Caring Society, both benefiting Indigenous youth). And clothing brands such as Liandra Swim or Ginew, an Indigenous denim line, are proving that traditional Indigenous design can still be contemporary.
