Crystal Echo Hawk, President/CEO, Illuminative
From NDN Collective:
“Crystal Echo Hawk is an enrolled member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and President and CEO of IllumiNative. IllumiNative was founded by Crystal Echo Hawk, President of Echo Hawk Consulting, and a group of respected Native artists, thought leaders and allies, to capitalize on the findings of Reclaiming Native Truth (RNT) – the largest public opinion research and strategy setting initiative ever conducted for, and about, Native Americans. The data presented in RNT concluded that pop culture, media and K-12 education drive and perpetuate the negative stereotypes and myths and has led to the erasure of Native peoples. Prior to leading IllumiNative and Echo Hawk Consulting, Echo Hawk served as the Executive Director for the Notah Begay III (NB3) Foundation from 2009-2014. She received both her Master’s Degree in Social and Political Thought and Bachelor’s Degree in European History from the University of Sussex at Falmer, England.”
Amy Yeung, Founder, Orenda Tribe
From Amy Yeung of Orenda Tribe:
“I am the daughter of a full-blooded Navajo, and my family comes from the Bisti Wilderness-Chaco Canyon region. I am deeply committed to helping Indigenous makers and artists find opportunities to create with Orenda Tribe.
After a career of designing fast fashion clothing destined for landfills, I arrived at a place of creating with consciousness. I have long believed in sustainable design processes—handmade, restored and repurposed vintage, one-of-a-kind upcycling of textiles. Orenda Tribe is built on these tenets and fueled by my desire to honor my Indigeneity, to protect our sacred lands, and to help others. As the Orenda Tribe team and I travel the world collecting beautiful treasures, I invite you to journey with us, to be a part of our experiments in fashion made in a more soulful way.”
