This year's Indigenous People's Day design for KEXP was created by Cindy Chischilly. Cindy Chischilly is Diné (Navajo). She was born and raised in the high desert of Shonto, Arizona on Diné land (also known as the Navajo Nation). She is the co-founder of White Canyon Design, and works as a brand consultant, graphic designer, illustrator and educator. Cindy is community-driven, bringing awareness of Indigenous issues to the forefront of her work. She believes good design can change our world.
Notes from Cindy on the design concept.
1. The sacred circle of community
2. The medicine wheel (represented by the red, yellow, black and white)
3. Drum circle
5. Infinite hands, representing past and present
