A fedora with a story.
Crafted from a cozy wool/polyester blend and delicately hand-beaded with vibrant seed beads all around the brim, this limited edition collection of adjustable hats is designed by Minnetonka’s Reconciliation Advisor Adrienne Benjamin.
A Minnesotan, Anishinaabe, and a member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, Adrienne is a multifaceted artist whose pieces encompass personal experiences and traditional cultural teachings. These designs symbolize her memories of home – and the natural beauty of the Big Island community where she comes from.
“The blue beaded hat represents the waters of Misi-zaaga’iganing (Mille Lacs Lake.) This lake is everything to the people of Mille Lacs and it was a main reason that our people chose to call this area home.” - Adrienne Benjamin
In honor of this Native-designed product launch and our ongoing commitment to the Native American community, Minnetonka will be donating to organizations selected by Adrienne Benjamin: Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center (MIWRC) and Niniijaanis. All profits from the sale of this product (less Minnetonka's shipping costs) will also be paid directly to Adrienne.

I’m not Native American. Is it appropriate for me to wear Native American designs?
According to Adrienne Benjamin, "When it comes to fashion, buying directly from an Indigenous designer is always best. You will be supporting their artistry, traditional knowledge, and even their community through that purchase. It also helps to learn about the tribe of the artist that you are purchasing from. If asked about the artistic fashion item while wearing it, you can then raise the bar of understanding and educate others about the history of those tribal people and even the lands on which the item may have been made."
