A couple of days before we headed off to Navajo Code Talkers Day in Window Rock, Arizona we were contacted by our long time friend Jared Yazzie from OXDX Clothing. He was putting together his Fall Release and asked us to be a part of the photoshoot, so of course we had to say YES! With his amazing line and so many dope creatives on his team, we knew it was going to be fly!
On May 5, 2016 we returned to the Heard Musuem for the Native+You’s First Friday! This was our second time hosting a Pinup Contest for Rockabilly Night and it was amazing!
We were so honored that the Title VII Indian Education of Los Angeles Unified School District invited us to be a part of their Student Recognition Ceremony on May 1, 2016. It was our first official event in California and were so excited to MC this special ceremony recognizing Native American students from Los Angeles. It was so great to see these students going above and beyond in their education. We’d like to thank the Title VII Indian Education Program for having us be a part of this special day and the Autry Museum for allowing us to take a tour of the museum.
On March 19th, 2016 we held our 3rd Annual Easter Eggstravaganza event in Window Rock, AZ. The Easter hunt took place at the Window Rock Veteran’s Park with hundreds of guests and 5,000 eggs! We also had a playful Alice in Wonderland theme for the Spring weather and handmade decorations from all our Members. Each of us dressed up as a character from the 1951 Disney movie, such as Alice, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Cheshire Cat, The Red Queen, Playing Cards, and Singing Flowers.
The weather was beautiful for March, with sunny skies and minimal winds. We hosted our Easter Bake Sale and Raffle Booth with many prizes donated by native artists such as Jay Garcia, Jay Smiley, Def-I, OxDx Clothing, and others. Our guests really enjoyed our themed event that year!
We were invited as special guests to participate in Presence 4.0’s Retrospectrum fashion show and style mixer in Phoenix, AZ at their downtown’s very own Bar Smith. The show was a portrayal of mixed fashions from different decades. Various Native American designers such as Loren Aragon’s ACONAV, Jared Yazzie’s OXDX Clothing, and Beyond Buckskin Boutique put together their own representations of a decade.
