Video: Sapulpa Twins to Feature Native American-Inspired Designs on NYC Billboard

SAPULPA, Okla. – The Sapulpa twins will be featured on a Times Square billboard in New York for a Native American-inspired clothing line.

Sheila Tucker started selling her Native American-inspired clothing and hats about seven years ago. Intricate beadwork is her specialty.

Tucker is from Canada, but currently lives in Arizona. About two years ago, her business really took off and her work was even featured at Paris Fashion Week.

Autumn and Raini Deerinwater are 24 year old twins from Sapulpa. They are members of the Muscogee Nation and do some modeling in addition to work and school.

Their father is a huge fan of Tucker’s work and connected Autumn with her when she moved to Arizona. Autumn started modeling for Tucker last year.

When a publicist reached out to Tucker on Instagram to feature her work on the New York Billboard, she thought of Autumn and that’s when Autumn mentioned Raini. Sheila has been sold. The twins were perfect.

Although this is the biggest publicity Tucker has ever done and by far the biggest modeling opportunity for the twins, they are very excited about representing and propelling their Native American culture.

“I want exposure for our employees, exposure that we can also be in the fashion industry, that we can take our work into the mainstream,” Tucker said.

The billboard is expected to go up in Times Square in the coming months.
