Smartwool x Trickster Shop the Collection
The forests and waterways that shelter salmon runs provide an abundance for the Tlingit and have fed Native Alaskans since the beginning of time. To the Tlingit people, salmon are a resource that’s to be respected and utilized sustainably. By protecting the salmon and its habitat, the salmon provide people with sustenance in return. This cycle is known as Xâat Kusteeyí (hot kut-see-yee), which translates to the “Salmon Way of Life” in English. The inspiration behind Crystal’s art in this collection is the Salmon Way of Life.
