Los Angeles musician / hatmaker Charlie Overbey of Lone Hawk Hats and partner Vanessa Dingwell have joined forces with United Natives (www.UnitedNatives.org) and Dr. Michelle Tom to aid in the COVID-19 crisis faced on the Navajo Nation Reservation.
Various members of the Lone Hawk Hat family, including actors Cree Summer and Raoul Max Trujillo, along with musicians Barry Gibb, Sheryl Crow, LP, Nils Lofgren, Chris Robinson, and many more have autographed and donated their own custom made one-of-a-kind Lone Hawk Hats to be auctioned off to support the United Natives efforts, including the work of Dr. Michelle Tom on the front lines.
Starting this Friday, May 22, the donated hats will be auctioned via Lone Hawk Hats Instagram (@lonehawkhats).
Overbey explains, “When we learned that the Navajo Nation now has more documented COVID-19 cases per capita than any of the United States and they are not yet receiving U.S. government funding, we knew we had to do something to help.”
In addition to the Lone Hawk Hat charity auction, Overbey will raffle off “This Ol’ Hat,” a vintage hat signed by the Lone Hawk Hat family members supporting the cause.
