American Indian Fashion: From Lloyd Kiva New to Now

Since the mid-20th century, American Indian fashion and design have reinforced Native identity and provided a platform for Native expression. The exhibit used clothing and accessories from the Heard Museum collection and other private collections to examine how materials, design, style and accessories honor tradition and create innovative statements on Native identity and culture.

Featured artists include legendary Cherokee designer Lloyd Kiva New, Virgil Ortiz (Cochiti) and other acclaimed artists.
