The 50th logo was designed in a collaborative effort between SACNAS and graphic artist, Rusty Gillette (Arikara and Hidatsa from the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota.)
The SACNAS 50th Anniversary Logo combines the imagery of the Pacific Northwest Native American art and the signature colors and elements of the organization. The background image includes the salmon and the raven which are both significant to the Indigenous people in the Pacific Northwest. SACNAS is hosting the 2023 National Diversity in STEM conference in Portland, Oregon, and wanted to honor the Native American tribes in the Pacific Northwest.
The logo was a collaborative effort and designed to celebrate and highlight SACNAS' 50th anniversary as an organization and commemorate all the amazing years of bringing our community together to achieve true diversity in STEM.
