Eighth Generation

Eighth Generation is a Native-owned and operated company based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2008 when Louie Gong (Nooksack) — a Native artist, activist and educator widely known for merging traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his urban environment to make strong statements about identity — started customizing shoes in his living room. Now the first Native-owned company to ever produce wool blankets -with a retail store in Seattle’s iconic Pike Place Market – Eighth Generation is a proud participant in the global economy with the mission of creating opportunities for community-based cultural artists.
