Walking Two Worlds with Native Model Quannah ChasingHorse

ChasingHorse grew up in a matriarchal family in Alaska as a member of the Hän Gwich’in people. Her advocacy, on behalf of her community, has made her an ambassador in the fashion industry for new perspectives and values, which she inherited from her mother and grandmother. For ChasingHorse, integrity and authenticity runs deep—her entire family is rooted in Native advocacy and raised her to have a distinct, fiery voice all her own. In this passionate conversation, ChasingHorse walks us through the culture shock she encountered coming to the continental US for the first time, stewardship of nature, of her people’s story, of the gifts they have to give, and the ways she grounds herself as she takes the fashion world by storm.
