This past Saturday night OXDX had a collaborative event with Beyond Buckskin and Grownup Navajo called "Protection In All Directions". This event emphasized the fight to preserve Native land all across the US, Mexico, and Canada. It was a night of fashion, resistance, and awareness - it was beautiful!
Peep out these photos of the event captured by Kyden Kescoli.
We had a visit from the Phoenix mayor, Greg Stanton.
He bought a "Native Americans Discovered Columbus" tee at the booth before heading out to another event.
Jessica Metcalfe of Beyond Buckskin addressed the crowd and expressed the importance of Native fashion within indigenous resistance.
Shining Soul graced the stage with an empowering performance.
Of course, the highlight of the night was our collaborative fashion show :)
Many beautiful and talented models were able to help us out including Dr. Adrienne Keene of NATIVE APPROPRIATIONS.
Words can't express the power and community I felt at this event. I am so thankful to all those that could make it out. We hope to keep bringing you events like this in the future!
