Diverse Culture Snapback ‘13

Designed by Joey Montoya

Although many Native American Indian’s are portrayed the same, their are a huge variety of tribes that have their own distinct designs and ways of life. Not every Native American is the same, we all spoke/ speak different languages, have different types of artwork, ceremonies, drums, etc. In this design, Joey Montoya takes a Pacific North Western art and combines it with Zuni art to show the varieties in different tribes around North America.

Idle No More is a movement that started in Canada by four women. Three of Aboriginal Descent and one of European descent. It started with Prime Minister Harpers decision to enforce the C-45 which would break and remove treaty rights among aboriginals in Canada. The movement has and is still becoming a world movement not only to Indigenous peoples, but to people who had enough with peoples decisions to destroy this planet and human rights.  For more information go to www.IdleNoMore.CA
