Designed by Mallory Taylor, this year Cherokee Phoenix Homecoming shirt features a phoenix and three women who represent the Three Sisters agricultural crops – winter squash, corn and beans.
Taylor – who is Cherokee/Osage/Blackfoot/Crow and lives in Bentonville, Arkansas – said the three crops benefit one another when planted together and that she wanted to symbolize the way Indigenous communities build, support and love one another.
Above the design in the Cherokee syllabary are the words “Cherokee Phoenix.” Below the image in English are the words “CHEROKEE HOMECOMING” as well as “2019” and Taylor’s signature. Also, the Cherokee Phoenix logo will be on a sleeve.
Unisex. 100% Cotton.
