Nike N7 is proud to partner with eight colleges to honor Native American Heritage Month. During selected men and women’s basketball games throughout November and into December, Nevada, Oklahoma State, Florida State, San Diego State, Gonzaga, New Mexico, Stanford and Haskell Indian Nations University (the only all-native school in the country) will each wear N7-inspired turquoise uniforms. Turquoise represents harmony, friendship and fellowship in Native American culture.
The uniforms also complement the Nike N7 Power of Perseverance Collection, recognizing the movement of sport on Native lands and driving awareness of Native American culture. The collection includes men and women’s basketball and running apparel and footwear, as well as the collaborative KD8 N7 with NBA star Kevin Durant.
Durant will debut the KD8 N7 on Native American Heritage Night, November 8, against the Phoenix Suns.
The schedule of teams wearing the Nike N7 turquoise uniforms is as follows:
November 13: Oklahoma State (Men’s)
November 15: Nevada (Men’s Rainbow Classic)
November 17: Florida State (Men’s)
November 18: San Diego State (Men’s)

N7 is Nike’s long-time commitment and mission to inspire and enable two million Native American and Aboriginal youth in North America to participate in sport and physical activity. The N7 philosophy embraces the Native philosophy: “In every deliberation we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”
The N7 Collection, which incorporates organic cotton and recycled polyester into several styles, highlights the N7 philosophy of considering the lasting impact our decisions have on the planet and embodies Nike’s commitment to sustainable innovation by creating product engineered for superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact.
After nearly a decade of partnership with tribes across North America to support programs aimed at physically active lifestyles, Nike deepened its connection to the Native American community in 2007 with the launch of N7 beginning with the Nike Air Native N7 shoe. The N7 Collection followed in 2009, to celebrate Native American and Aboriginal culture and to raise awareness for the N7 Fund, which has raised more than $3 million for Native American and Aboriginal youth sport programs. Later this month the N7 Fund will announce grantees for the fall funding cycle and timing for applications for the spring cycle.
About Nike Community Impact
Nike believes in the power of sport to move the world and unleash human potential. However, the world is moving less and less, and today's generation of children is the least physically active ever. That’s why Nike works to get kids (ages 7-12) active early and for life, because active kids are happier, healthier and more successful. Together with its employees, partners, consumers and athletes, Nike also supports important causes that strengthen communities across the globe. Learn more.
