Brown, who formed Decontie & Brown with wife and partner Donna Decontie-Brown, says it’s gratifying to see people wear their innovative Wabanaki-inspired jewelry and clothing — including leggings, dresses, hoodies and haute couture gowns.

“Unfortunately, some people think of us (Native Americans) as being in the past. This places us in the modern world,” he says.
