Paul Frank teams up withNative American artists
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It wasFashion’s Night Out in Los Angeles.Celebrities and models packed partiesand shopping extravaganzas thrown bydesigners and retailers.The people at Paul Frank Industries —famous for putting Julius the monkeyon everything from T-shirts to bicycles— were hoping to have some fun withthe latest trend of Native Americaninspired designs. Theirofferings includedfeather headbands, toytomahawks and glow-in-the-dark war paint.The backlash was infull swing within 24hours.Bloggers and othercritics blasted lastyear’s neon-lit pow-wow as racist and thelatest fashion faux pas to anger NativeAmericans.After apologizing, Paul FrankIndustries spent nearly a year workingwith its most vocal critics and a diverseteam of Native American artists anddesigners to create a new collection of merchandise with a distinct Native ﬂavor.This time, it was done right, said ElieDekel, president of Saban Brands, theparent company of Paul Frank.The beaded sunglasses, brightly col-ored handmade accessories, tote bagsand graphic T-shirts were set to beunveiled Friday evening at the Museumof Contemporary Native Arts in SantaFe as part of the annual Santa Fe IndianMarket festivities.Bloggers Adrienne Keene, a memberof the Cherokee tribe who writes NativeAppropriations, and Jessica Metcalfe, aTurtle Mountain Chippewa from NorthDakota who runs Beyond Buckskin,were among those involved in themonthly conference callsand hundreds of emails thatwere shared over manymonths as the projectdeveloped. Keene, in arecent blog post, called thecollaboration “a big winfor Indian Country” butsaid it was important toremember what sparked thecollaboration.“Remembering thebeginning is how we con-tinue to move forwardtogether,” she wrote. “History is writ-ten by those in power, so we need tocontinue to push to have our versionshared and not forgotten.”People who worked on the projectwere hoping the collaboration willserve as a template for other manufac-turers to be more thoughtful when deal-ing with cultural imagery.“We were sincerely aghast at how wehad found ourselves in that situationabout a year ago, and today it’s trulyhumbling to all involved that it hasemerged into something so positive,”Dekel said. Dekel said it wasn’t until hestarted talking to Keene and Metcalfethat he learned the problem was muchbigger than a Warholesque ﬂier featur-ing Julius in a headdress.“It illuminated a larger issue of wow,Native American imagery and culturalreferences have been appropriated bynumerous companies and businessesand industries over generations now,”he said. “This is an ongoing issue.”Last fall, Victoria’s Secret apologizedfor putting a Native American-styleheaddress on a model for its annual fash-ion show. The outﬁt was criticized as adisplay of ignorance toward tribal cul-ture and history.The band No Doubt also apologizedafter running into criticism for its cow-boys-and-Indians-themed video. In2011, Urban Outﬁtters Inc. set off aﬁrestorm with its line of Navajo-brand-ed clothing and accessories that includ-ed underwear and a liquor ﬂask.The collection created by Paul Frankand the Native designers incorporatesbeading techniques and designs that areinﬂuenced by tribal cultures that stretchfrom the Navajo and Taos Pueblo in theSouthwest to the Great Plains and Canada.The designers include Autumn DawnGomez, who is Comanche and Taos;Louie Gong of the Nooksack Tribe;Candace Halcro, who is Plains Cree andMetis Aboriginal; and Dustin QuinnMartin of the Navajo Nation.
