The San Francisco Arts Commission and Sewam American Indian Dance are partnering to bring the first Native American art-fashion event to San Francisco City Hall.
“The Continuous Thread: Celebrating Our Interwoven Histories, Identities and Contributions” Fashion Show: 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15. Free, but RSVP required. San Francisco City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B Goodlett Place, S.F. https://bit.ly/2YkTKXy
Designers Sho Sho Esquiro (who is of Kaska Dene and Cree ancestry) and “Project Runway” alumna Patricia Michaels (who is of Taos Pueblo ancestry) plan to present their work in a runway performance in the iconic Rotunda. The event, which is free but requires an RSVP, is intended to reclaim space for indigenous voices and bring awareness to an epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women.
The fashion show is part of a citywide initiative titled “The Continuous Thread: Celebrating Our Interwoven Histories, Identities and Contributions.” The initiative explores themes around indigenous culture and history, like the 50th anniversary of the occupation of Alcatraz, the one-year anniversary of San Francisco’s first Indigenous People’s Day, and the anniversary of the removal of the “Early Days” sculpture.
