Specializing in adventure-ready binoculars and accessories, Nocs Provisions has partnered with Amelia Winger-Bearskin to create a limited-edition binocular bundle – inspired by the traditional patterns and beadwork of the Seneca-Cayuga Nation of Oklahoma, of which Amelia is an enrolled member.
This Honor Native Land bundle is available exclusively at REI Co-op, in all stores nationwide, and on REI.com.
The limited edition bundle includes Nocs’ award-winning Standard Issue 8×25 waterproof binoculars (in two limited edition colorways, Dewdrop Blue and Dewdrop Gray), a woven tapestry strap designed by Winger-Bearskin, and the Nocs Photo Rig Smartphone Adapter for taking photos through the binoculars.
This partnership is part of the US Department of Arts and Culture: Honor Native Land nonprofit, in which Winger-Bearskin plays a significant role.
Honor Native Land, the collaboration’s subject and concept, is an endeavor to raise awareness of the practice of monitoring and honoring Native land through acknowledgment and efforts to correct the stories and practices that erase Indigenous people’s history and culture.
Winger-Bearskin is an Indigenous artist (Haudenosaunee [Iroquois]) of the Seneca-Cayuga Nation of Oklahoma, Deer Clan) who innovates with artificial intelligence in ways that honor native land.
The bundle is available at REI stores and on REI.com for $150.
