Bethany Yellowtail talks cultural appropriation & more with James St. James!
In honor of the premiere of our new series alter-NATIVE following a year in the like of B.Yellowtail CEO Bethany Yellowtail‘s life, James St. James sat down with Bethany to talk about the Indie Lens Storycast series!
The series, which comes from WOWlebrity and director Billy Luther, follows the Native American fashion designer as she develops her latest collection inspired by her art, activism, and indigenous women! Of course James wanted to pick her brain about, well, any and everything!
They talk about cultural appropriation in the fashion industry, Bethany reveals that she stood up to Anna Wintour (go girl!), and talks about how art is a hustle back on the reservation. She even talks about a dream she has for an old, crumbling building on her reservation and what she hopes to turn that building in to one day!
