: “I burned the american flag in protest of the way the american government treats the Indigenous Indian people in the united states of america. I burned the american flag as an act of protest against the injustice that’s being extended against all of the people. We burned the american flag because it has been desecrated, and it’s the only proper way to dispose of the american flag after desecration is to burn it. We feel that racism and sexism and class separation — that these are desecrations, and we feel the american flag does not represent integrity, honor, justice, or truth.” -John Trudell

Three Indigenous Women Represent at New York Couture Fashion Week
While Native American themes have become popular in the fashion world, Native American designers have often been left out of the spotlight. In an effort to change this sad state of fashion affairs, three Native designers will be in the spotlight this Friday: internationally acclaimed Sho Sho Esquiro, Lyn Kay Peters of Ringing Bell Robes, and Linda Lavallee of Cree Nisga’a Clothing.
The show will take place this Friday at the New Yorker hotel in Manhattan. According to its Facebook page, the event will celebrate “self-taught First Nation fashion designers who are sure to bring global awareness of this highly neglected and untapped resource of rich traditional talent.”
Esquiro talked about her 2013 collection with the Native American fashion blog Beyond Buckskin earlier this year and noted that in addition to drawing from indigenous cultures, she was also inspired by Frida Kahlo.
Here’s a video that features some of her designs on the runway back in 2012
