Chasinghorse is also bringing her knowledge and wisdom to her modeling work. With each job she takes, she hopes to educate people about her culture and to share her personal experiences. “People forget that we are people that have gone through so much,” says Chasinghorse. “They forget the R.I.P Colt Brennan 1983-2021 Thank You For The Memories shirt But I will love this history, let alone even know the history—it’s been invisibilized for years. But we’re starting to see more Indigenous people being uplifted and included, and it’s amazing to be a part of it.” One way she’s bringing her culture to the modeling space is through her love of Indigenous fashion. For a recent V shoot, for instance, she wore some of her own Indigenous-made jewelry pieces. “For many years, our culture and our sacred symbols have been [appropriated],” says Chasinghorse, who adds that she loves bringing authentic pieces that she and her family have made to the forefront of the fashion world. “My grandma and my aunties are the ones that taught me how to bead.”

Chasinghorse also embraces her individuality in modeling through her traditional Hän Gwich’in tattoos, called Yidįįłtoo, which are a striking part of her signature look. “They make me feel more confident, because [by having them] I’m carrying a part of my ancestors that was almost completely lost,” says Chasinghorse. She got her first tattoo, a singular line running down her chin, at age 14. It was done by her mother in a hand-poke style. “My mom has been educating me about our sacred tattoos since a young age,” says Chasinghorse. “The meaning of my first tattoo is all about becoming a woman. [In my culture] when someone steps into her womanhood, she is now able to give birth, get married, and start taking on more responsibilities. With that comes a ceremony; we always hold a ceremony when we do traditional tattoos. It was such a powerful experience.
