About 8th Generation
“Inspired Natives, not “Native-inspired.”
Eighth Generation is the first Native-owned company to produce wool blankets and is owned by the Snoqualmie Tribe. We offer an ethical alternative to “Native-inspired” art and products through our mission to empower artists and 100% Native designed products. Our Inspired Natives Project, anchored by the tagline “Inspired Natives, not Native-inspired,” builds business capacity among cultural artists while addressing the negative impacts of cultural appropriation.
Warrior Up Blanket
A collaboration with Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples, one of the nation’s oldest Native philanthropic organizations, this blanket highlights the mighty Yellowhammer Flicker, a powerful medicine being that links Earth and Sky with each new day.
This blanket was designed with Kateri Masten (Yurok) and Chisa Oros (Zuni/Yoeme). The flicker is centered above seven descending horizontal lines, representing the concept of “seven generations” and carrying lessons of knowledge and new beginnings. The outer edges are bordered with two Yurok basket designs, the swallowtail and butterfly. The prominence of black in the design signifies wisdom and respect for the Ancestors, while the blue represents water.
