Listen as Jaclyn Roessel, one of the co-founders of the blog presence 4.0 and Whisper n Thunder board member, shares a dynamic show on Native style, fashion and creativity. Presence 4.0 is a style blog centered on showcasing the ingenuity and creativity American Indian people utilize in styling themselves. Co-produced by a trio of Navajo women, including Nanibaa Beck and Chelsea Chee, P4 documents our Native community’s participation in fashion by featuring individuals’ style and expression on the ground, off the streets, along the dirt road because it happens there every day. The trio will talk about the founding of their blog, memorable posts and the inspiration they find in covering Native people through their site.
Joining the conversation is Dr. Jessica Metcalfe (Turtle Mountain Chippewa), owner of Beyond Buckskin Boutique and scholar on American Indian fashion and Warren Montoya (Tamayo/Kha’po Owingeh) artist and owner of Rezonate Art. Metcalfe and Montoya will share their thoughts on American Indian art, fashion and creativity. The two will talk about an upcoming collaboration with P4.
