Whether you’re in college, high school or elementary school—or if you need to fork out the dough for the student in your life—maybe they all would like to show a bit of Native style at school.
So, among the highlighters and pencils, books and snacks, and cell phone and computer accessories, here are 10 Native-themed back to school items to show your Native style:
A Beaded Cell Phone Case
Text in your Native language for extra credit!
A Pendleton Pencil Case
Imagine you are reaching for a pencil, and out comes a cool Pendleton pencil case—oh yeah!
Some Native-Themed Glasses
If you’ve been starting to squint or are having some trouble reading the teacher’s notes, you may need glasses. Generally speaking, glasses aren’t cheap, but if you’re going to invest, how about Aya eyewear? Aya is a First Nations brand with cool designs and colors.
Some of these specs were designed by First Nations artist Corrine Hunt, who was commissioned for the first series of AYA Accessories.
A Laptop Skin
What better way to express to the masses a bit about your Native connection? Just check out these Native Laptop skins available at Café Press. From tribal affiliations to artwork and Native proverbs… Café Press has some way cool stuff to slap onto your laptop. I really like “Proud to be Mohawk” for some reason.
This Warrior’s Brew by the Native American Tea Company is the bomb. This is the type of thing for students who might need that little boost of caffeine-laden black tea in the morning. Warrior’s Brew is enhanced with star anise, orange peel and cinnamon. If you drink this, you are a warrior. The Native American Tea Company brews up all sorts of tea blends, with and without caffeine.
Those students wishing to strut around school with smoking hot kicks can just head over to Nike N7 and choose the best in Native style. If anyone doesn’t like them? No worries, you can run faster than them—and look good doing it.
