A logo is how we recognize a company and distinguish it from others- It is a visual representation of everything that company stands for.
The NDN Companies’ founders wanted the logo to be designed 100% Native- So they reached out to a long-time friend, Leland Thompson of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana. Fourteen-year-old Kateri Thompson, the daughter of Leland, is the creator and designer of The NDN Companies Logo.
My name is Kateri Thompson. I am an enrolled member of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and related to the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe in Livingston, Texas from my paternal side and related to the Mohawk people on my maternal side. I am 14 years old and currently in the 9th grade. My parents are Andrea and Leland Thompson. I have two sisters Gwyneth and Marisol Thompson. My hobbies include soccer, volleyball, stickball, jingle dress dancing, drawing, basket-weaving, beading, and many do-it-yourself crafts. Although I have yet to choose a career path, my passion lies in wildlife rehabilitation, art, fashion design, and special effects.
