Drop by the Eighth Generation flagship store to visit with Seattle Tlingit, Haida & Tsimshian Youth as they make traditional button vests! About Seattle Tlingit, Haida & Tsimshian Youth: "Our culture is 10,000 years old, and it is our belief that we are responsible for teaching our rich history and culture to our children, and making sure it is taught properly - with strong cultural knowledge, identity, and leadership skills - so that they can go on to be stewards of our culture and community. We provide a safe and supportive environment for them to build community, learn their family history and cultural ways, and explore their identity as contemporary urban Native youth so they can be examples of positive change-makers in their families and communities." The vests they will be making show their moiety clans of either Raven or Eagle, and will be used by the youth when they participate in future cultural events.
