Lifting the Sky: An Indigenous Fashion Show

May 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm


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 fashion market. The fashion 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.

This event will be held in SAM’s lobby and is free, open to the public, and family friendly. Seeing SAM’s exhibitions upstairs will be half-off usual museum rates.
