Urban Native Girl Does Pendleton Panache

In 1809, Pendleton Woolen Mills in Pendleton, Oregon, began mass-producing Indian trading blankets. They studied the color and design of local and Southwest Native American designs in order to replicate them for mass use. At the end of World War II, Pendleton was the only American woolen mill still in business. Although Pendelton Woolen Mills is non-Native owned, it has a rich history of supplying amazing designs consistently throughout the years. Two hundred years after the company's founding, Pendleton designs are more popular than ever, and a fixture of street fashion.

Pendleton Denim Jacket

Dynamic Denim

There are few items as versatile as a denim jacket. When you add a Pendleton yoke to it, you get that fantastic fusion of fashion and function. While this jacket could look very much at home on any hipster throughout Turtle Island, it could also look real fine on a rancher doing his thing out in the wild. I could just see John Eagle (Glen Gould) from the Showcase series Cashing In rocking one of these while riding his steed. The design is a tribute to the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation, to honor their efforts with the Deschutes river restoration.

Pendleton Vans skate shoes

Jam on It

Last month at the Gathering of Nations, you would have been hard pressed to walk for more than 5 minutes in the Indian Traders Market without finding someone clutching a Vans shoebox. To say that the Pendleton Vans were a hot item would be a gross understatement. Peeps from all over Indian Country are buying them, and every purchase supports the Native non-profit organization Nibwaakaawin, the organizer behind the All Nations Skate Project, so you can feel positively wholesome about this hot addition to your sneaker collection.

“Chukkas” @ Nibwaakaawin. $75 USD.
“Slip Ons” @ Nibwaakaawin. $70 USD.

Sho Sho Esquiro Pendleton

Yo Quiero Esquiro

Another booth at Gathering of Nations that attracted a lot of attention was that of Vancouver-based, Dene fashion designer Sho Sho Esquiro. Her unique designs usually combine Pendleton with a contemporary, urban twist. I particularly love the half-corset shown above that’s combined with an ostrich embossed leather. She also delves into men’s fashions with oversized hoodies, perfect for that Native rapper fresh to the scene. Custom orders are her thing, so be sure to connect with her for more deets.

On sunny days in late March," With its cast of well-known stars (Wildes real-life squeeze Jason Sudeikis has a small role) "Drinking Buddies" possesses more surface sheen than Swanbergs previous outings but it hews to his loose improvisatory style a lack of fussiness that masks often profound emotional truths and deep perceptionIn this case it examines the simple rarely romantic truths that undergird commitment upending all manner of aesthetic and narrative conventions in the process "Drinking Buddies" is helped enormously by its relaxed pacing exuberant alt-rock soundtrack and photogenic lead players all of whom are still young enough to drink copious glasses of hoppy libations without one broken blood vessel or expanding waistline Wilde and Johnson are particularly convincing as opposite-sex buds who are so in synch that they raise their glasses at the same timeBut beyond the joking around and "like you know" confidences "Drinking Buddies" slyly puts the lie to myriad Hollywood myths about love friendship rivalry and the laws of attraction and has enormous fun doing it You may know where this will end up but watch "Drinking Buddies" anyway Youll be amazed more by where it doesnt go than where it does????R At Landmarks E Street Cinema Contains profanity throughout 90 minutesan oral biography clothed in the distressed brick-red jacket of an old paperback but really just one pincer in a multimedia Anschluss that includes surgical strafings of advance press If nothing else,” Veliz said. “President Obama fought for my community, a liberal in a hurry ordered all US attorneys to simply stop charging nonviolent non-gang-related drug defendants with crimes that while fitting the offense carry mandatory sentences Find some lesser non-triggering charge How might you do that for example the amount of dope involvedIn other words evade the law by deceiving the court if necessary "If the companies that I represent in federal criminal cases" did that said former deputy attorney general George Terwilliger "they could be charged with a felony"But such niceties must not stand in the way of an administrations agenda Indeed the very next day it was revealed that the administration had on a patients annual out-of-pocket expenses a one-year exemption for selected health insurers that is nowhere permitted in the law It was simply decreed by an obscure Labor Department regulationWhich followed a presidentially directed for the insurance premiums paid by congressmen and their personal staffs under a law that denies subsidies for anyone that well-offWhich came just a month after the administrations equally lawless suspension of one of the cornerstones of Obamacare: Which followed granted by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to selected businesses unions and other well-lobbied very special interestsNor is this kind of rule-by-decree restricted to health care In 2012 against young illegal immigrants brought here as children Congress had refused to pass such a law () just 18 months earlier that the Constitution forbade him from enacting it without Congress But with the fast approach of an election that could hinge on the Hispanic vote Obama did exactly that UnilaterallyThe point is not what you think about the merits of the DREAM Act Or of mandatory drug sentences Or of subsidizing health care premiums for $175000-a-year members of Congress Or even whether you think for welfare recipients an authority the administration granted last year in clear violation of section 407 of the landmark The point is whether a president charged with faithfully executing the laws that Congress enacts may create ignore suspend and/or amend the law at will Presidents are arguably permitted to refuse to enforce laws they consider unconstitutional (the basis for so many of George W Bushs so-called signing statements) But presidents are forbidden from doing so for reasons of mere policy the reason for every Obama violation listed above Such gross executive usurpation disdains the Constitution It mocks the separation of powers And most consequentially it introduces a fatal instability into law itself If the law is not what is plainly written but is whatever the president and his agents decide whats left of the lawThe problem is not just uncertain enforcement but the undermining of the very creation of new law Whats the point of the whole legislative process of crafting various provisions through give-and-take negotiation if you cannot rely on the fixity of the final product on the assurance that the provisions bargained for by both sides will be carried outConsider now in gestation The essence of any deal would be legalization in return for strict border enforcement If some such legislative compromise is struck what confidence can anyone have in it if the president can unilaterally alter whatever (enforcement) provisions he never liked in the first place Yet this president is not only untroubled by what hes doing but open and rather proud As he tells cheering crowds on his never-ending campaign-style tours: I am going to do X and Thats caudillo talk Thats banana republic stuff In this country the president is required to win the consent of Congress first At stake is not some constitutional curlicue At stake is whether the laws are the law And whether presidents get to write their ownRead more from or outdoor grill and cabana,When Wall inked his new deal,"The 54-year-old commander and father of six.
