FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

B.Yellowtail joins forces with Sarah Eagle Heart to form SACREDx 

 

Los Angeles, CA 

February 28, 2017

LA-based Fashion Designer Bethany Yellowtail has joined forces with Sarah Eagle Heart, CEO of Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) to launch a social impact clothing brand called SACREDx.  The powerhouse duo are on a mission to dress the resistance, and bring indigenous voices back to the forefront.  

Yellowtail and Eagle Heart’s first collaboration circled around producing a bandana for the Women’s March on Washington, and with overwhelming success the turquoise swath has rapidly grown to become a recognizable symbol for #IndigenousWomenRise. This quickly sparked an immediate call to action, leading to the development of a full-fledged clothing line of “resistance gear.”

This women warrior symbol signifies how many Indigenous tribes are matrilineal societies which means property belongs to the women, and women are highly involved in the decision-making process for the greater good of the tribe. In many tribes, women serve as strategists and communicators during battle. During this current movement period, Indigenous women have come together nationally through Indigenous Women Rise to organize in their communities and share knowledge of priority issues affecting indigenous peoples including:  Violence Against Women, Violence Against the Earth, and Access to Healthcare.
