Innovate Montana Symposium - Northern Cheyenne fashion designer Bethany Yellowtail credits her L.A. success to her Montana roots

July 12, 2017View for printing

Bethany Yellowtail has made a name for herself in the Los Angeles fashion world, but her dream is to return home to Montana to manufacture her lines.

Yellowtail, a member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe, said Wednesday in Billings that her experience growing up on the Crow reservation is woven into her clothing line, B. Yellowtail https://www.byellowtail.com/ , created in 2014.

She lives and manufactures in southern California.

"I learn from you guys. I see 100 B. Yellowtails when I go home," the 29-year-old said at the downtown DoubleTree by Hilton hotel.

The B.Yellowtail Collective https://www.byellowtail.com/all/ features products from Native American artists across the Great Plains tribal regions.
