Vanessa Bowen is a Diné (Navajo) artist and product designer. Her work gravitates toward the intersection of design and social equity.
In 2016, she became well-known for producing “Make America Native Again” hats as a way of starting conversation about the problematic history behind Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan — “Make America Great Again” — and to raise awareness for marginalized indigenous peoples in the U.S.
Her work is guided by the strong belief that design can problem-solve and lead to the implementation of new ideas.
