In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Yahoo commissioned Steph Littlebird, an Indigenous artist, curator and writer, to re-imagine the Yahoo logo.
A member of Oregon’s Grand Ronde Confederated Tribe, Littlebird has received national recognition for her curatorial work, using design to call attention to issues related to present-day Indigenous identities, marginalized histories, and responsible land stewardship.
“I hope people feel inspired and connected to Indigenous history and community. I love the colors and hope viewers feel the vibrancy of Native life that I hope to convey.”
Littlebird found inspiration in honoring the values of the Indigenous community which includes traditional crafts, family, and our connection to the land.
“I wanted the logo to represent the beauty and complexities of Native American identities across Turtle Island.”
The Indigenous artist-curator says that while Native American heritage is important to celebrate all year long, it’s especially important in November.
“This month gives us time to reflect and share with the broader community.”
