In her brief interview, Reyome pushed back on stereotypes about indigenous people and discussed the spiritual significance of Native American cultural markers, like the eagle feather she wears in her hair. I feel powerful when I wear it, more confident, and more connected to my ethnicity. Reyome is one of a growing number of Native American fashion workers and artisans to take a stand against cultural appropriation of late. Mic has profiled several of these artists, who fight daily to produce culturally authentic art in the face of designers, companies and everyday people who play fast and loose with their own versions of Native craftwork — often with little or no respect to its origins. This can be devastating to Native people, who already must contend with a legacy of theft — of their land, resources and their culture — that has since relegated many of them to the margins of American society and economy. If we don't put back into the environment that's sustaining that resource, we end up killing it.

Hair represents the pure thoughts and spiritual status of an Individual, showing the bonds and spiritual oneness of a Family and defines the cultural harmony and spiritual alignment of a Nation. Straight, flowing hair, teaches of one that can gracefully hold or let go of life. Thoughts can extend in a uniform manner, flowing directly from the source, like the movement of water flowing from the mountain top to the ocean, and then the water can rise up again to fall once more. For those with Curly hair, they will have the potential to understand the Spiral, Curve and Energy of Life.
