Native creation and use of color

From the rich colors used in Navajo weaving to all the colors of the rainbow beaded into medallions and regalia, Indigenous hues carry meaning, stories, and emotion.

Some colors specific to tribes represent the available animals, plants, and minerals used to make them.

Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce talks with Native artists about traditional and contemporary meanings, sources, and uses of color.

Guests on Native America Calling

Anong Beam (M’Chigeeng), founder of Beam Paints

Michael Sheyahshe (Caddo), founder and technologist at alterNative Media
