OSU Basketball, Nike Collaborate With Native American Heritage Uniforms

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER -

The Oklahoma State men’s and women’s basketball teams partnered with Nike and will wear turquoise Nike N7 uniforms to celebrate Native American Heritage Month.

The Cowboys will don the N7 uniform for the season opener against UT Martin on Nov. 13 and the women will wear them on Nov. 20 when they take on SIU Edwardsville.

The color turquoise represents harmony, friendship and fellowship in the Native American culture. Along with OSU, eight other schools are participating in the initiative to highlight Native American Heritage Month.  

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.”

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 $4 million for Native American and Aboriginal youth sport programs.
