Nike N7


Nike N7: "N7 began more than 20 years ago, as a business plan to support the Native American community. It was created by Sam McCracken, who grew up on the Fort Peck Assiniboine/Sioux Reservation in Montana and is now General Manager of Nike N7. McCracken’s recognition for the impact of N7 programs includes President Barack Obama’s 2010 appointment to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Advisory Council on Indian Education and a 2020 induction into the Montana Indian Athletic Hall of Fame. His leadership also supports the Nike Native American Network’s ongoing commitment to education, visibility and representation for Nike’s Indigenous community, including a recruitment and retention strategy. The Nike N7 Fund, created to connect Native American and Indigenous youth to play, sport and physical activity programs, awarded more than $8 million in grants administered by the Charities Aid Foundation of America to more than 270 communities and organizations between 2009-2021." 

2022 N7 Collection: "Inspired by berry dyeing and the bold multi-color stripes of ribbon skirts, the latest Nike N7 Collection celebrates the athletes, creators and cultural game-changers of the seven generations. Graphics made from algae-based ink technology gives the collection a special combination of style and sustainability."
