Imagine a world where people look at those different than themselves and first see the many similarities between them. This is our mission at Feather Bear.
From Indian country to the frontlines of Iraq, we’ve seen the life-changing impact that comes from deep understandings about the cultures of others. Because when we understand others, we see that we’re more similar than different. And this understanding helps us feel comfortable around everyone, making possible meaningful relationships with people from all backgrounds.
But learning about all of the thousands of cultures around us - many indigenous cultures hidden in plain sight - is not easy. Which is why we created Feather Bear, a values-driven Native American Owned Clothing Company that believes our kids deserve better tools to learn about other cultures so they can live more connected and fulfilling lives. KC Elvis, a US Army Airborne Combat Veteran in Iraq, co-founded Feather Bear to serve as a place for cultures of all people to be shared - including indigenous people. Elvis grew up in a Native American-Athabascan village in rural Alaska, only accessible by airplane and boat. The village struggled with many crimes, from suicide to sexual assault.
