"For The People, By The People"
Be Heard Merch is inspired by Koyai Z. Clauschee who was born and raised in the small rural town of Chinle, Az located on the Navajo Reservation.
"I am half Navajo, quarter Irish, and quarter German. Growing up the first 18 years of my life I was almost ashamed of my Irish and German decent being around a majority of Native Americans. I then spent many years after on my journey off the reservation almost ashamed of my Navajo side due to stereotypes. As I educated myself more and became more comfortable with who I am, I quickly became extremely proud of my mix ethnicities and upbringing. The journey of being comfortable in my own skin was a long one, but taught me many lessons and experiences I want to share with YOU!" -Koyai Z. Clauschee
I want to collaborate my simple everyday style with the beautiful and powerful patterns/colors I've learned through meeting amazing ethnicities across the world, especially my from my cultures! Not only do I want to show you all the world through my eyes, but give you all a voice through the process by incorporating your visions into something as simple, but as powerful as a piece of clothing. One love, one united, one world.
