This Indigenous Artist Designs Traditional Clothes for a Virtual World

This year, the Santa Fe Indian Market went virtual. The annual event typically sees Indigenous artists from across North America gather in New Mexico to sell their authentic works across hundreds of booths. While this summer’s lineup looked different, it was still a real place for discovery. The schedule, spread out across the month of August, included everything from a shoppable online marketplace, where consumers could find authentic Indigenous-made goods, to a virtual fashion show that showcased the works of seven Indigenous designers, including veteran Diné designer Orlando Dugi.

During the virtual fashion show, which was held last week, the designers combined traditional craft with modern finishings, all of which challenged the idea of what Indigenous design can be. One artist in particular stood out from the lineup: Skawennati, a Mohawk artist based in Montréal, Canada. Originally from Kahnawake, which is Mohawk territory, Skawennati has been producing her multimedia art

A set of the best computer speakers is a great move for any PC and gaming setup. In a world seemingly dominated by headsets, the best PC speakers still open up options for players of games, but also those who use their setups for everything else too.

Cargo, one of the least glamorous aspects of flying, is proving a rare ray of light for airlines amid the coronavirus gloom.

The grounding of passenger planes at a time of increased demand for everything from medical supplies to iPhones has boosted freight rates. With much of the world’s population house-bound and shopping online instead of hitting the malls, analysts see no let-up in demand, particularly as the peak year-end holiday season approaches.
