For Spring 2016, Nike's N7 program, dedicated to inspiring Native American and Aboriginal youth in North America to participate in physical activity, features a collection inspired by the tagline "Move Your Generation." This season's Nike N7 ambassadors are Lyle Thompson, a lacrosse player and Iroquois Confederacy Ambassador, and Jude Schimmel, a basketball player from Umatilla Tribes. They're joined by contemporary artist and activist Bunky Echo-Hawk, a member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and Yakama Nation of Washington, whose work inspires the new line. N7 designers took cues from the acrylic pigments adorning Echo-Hawk's well-worn jeans, using those painterly marks on the Nike N7 Splash Tee for men and Nike N7 Splash Tank for women, as well as on the Nike N7 Air Max Tavas and Nike N7 Juvenate sneakers. Additional prominent motifs include reflective inserts on the Nike N7 Hybrid Jacket; graphic triangles on jackets and sweatpants; and four-point stars on the women's Nike N7 Block Star Tight.
Check out individual pieces in the gallery below, and look for the Nike N7 Spring 2016 collection to launch March 19 at Nike.com and select retailers.
