Award winning artist Jamie Okuma applied a Native American aesthetic to a pair of Christian Louboutin stilettos. Meticulously beaded and quilled, they are a contemporary version of highly decorated moccasins. @j.okuma researches historic artwork but updates the aesthetic to appeal to contemporary Native tastes and concerns.⁠

Minneapolis Institute of Art: Celebrate and honor Native American heritage and contemporary culture with art, stories, videos, virtual exhibitions and more this month (and always)!
