Norma in Paris

Monday, March 11, 2019 – Norma Baker-Flying Horse is a fashion designer from New Town who’s hitting the big time. She just had a show as part of Paris Fashion Week, and she's the first contemporary Native American fashion designer to have one of her gowns worn at the Oscars. She’s just back in the state and joins us to discuss her career and her style of design. ~~~ Commentary from Mark Trahant, who wonders about the possibility of a presidential primary in Indian Country.  ~~~ Chuck Lura shares a Natural North Dakota essay on lichens. ~~~ We know we should eat well and exercise, but what role does design play in the equation? From office buildings to menus, how and when we interact with food impacts how we eat. That was the topic for this month’s presentation at First Fridays at B. Today we share some highlights from presenters Michelle Draxten, Rory Beil, and Mary Larson.
