Lifting the Sky: An Indigenous Fashion Show

  • Seattle Art Museum, Brotman Forum 1300 1st Ave Seattle, WA 98101 (map)

Free, open to the public, and family friendly.

In partnership with the Seattle Art Museum, yəhaw̓ presents Lifting the Sky: An Indigenous Fashion Show. Curator Lisa Fruichantie (Seminole/Mvskoke-Creek) brings together Native designers, artists, and performers from across the Pacific Northwest for a night of Indigenous fashion. Watch contemporary styles walk the runway to the beat of a powwow drum, learn about intertribal regalia created by local community members, and shop at an all-Native market. The show starts at 6 pm and the Native Fashion Market takes place throughout the evening. Visitors can continue exploring urban Indigenous perspectives upstairs in the SAM galleries with half-off admission to Jeffrey Gibson: Like a Hammer.
