REAPPROPRIATION

Ashley Callingbull and Thosh Collins Present ‘Reappropriation’

The photos below come to us from L.A.-based fashion photographer Anthony “Thosh” Collins — it’s a project called “Reappropriation,” which he describes as “a more accurate depiction of appropriation while paying tribute to previous generations who’ve passed down culture to our generation, all with a modern but vintage twist.” Urban Native Girl Lisa Charleyboy describes it as Callingbull “[digging] in her closet to showcase her authentic Native fashion and present it in a good way honoring her family, her nation and all Native people across Turtle Island (North America),” which sounds about right.
