In a landmark move, Nike has signed WNBA rookie Alissa Pili to represent its N7 label, marking a significant moment for the athlete and the brand. The N7 program, Nike's dedicated subdivision supporting Indigenous communities across North America, has made a profound impact since its inception in 2009. With nearly $11 million donated to around 300 organizations, Nike N7 continues to foster growth and opportunities within these communities, and Pili's addition to the team underscores this commitment. Nick DePaula initially reported the news of this signing.

Alissa Pili, of Iñupiat and Samoan descent, was recently drafted by the Minnesota Lynx in this year's WNBA draft. Known for her tenacity and skill on the court, Pili brings a unique heritage and perspective to the league. Her signing with Nike N7 highlights her exceptional talent and dedication to representation and advocacy for Indigenous and Polynesian communities.

In her statement about the new deal, Pili expressed her enthusiasm and sense of duty, saying, "I’m so honored to join the Nike Family as a Nike N7 athlete. Representation is important to me, and I look forward to making an impact in the league and demonstrating to all the Indigenous and Polynesian girls who love the game, that they can reach their dreams." These words resonate with her journey and the broader mission of Nike N7.

Pili's partnership with Nike N7 is expected to inspire many young athletes who see themselves reflected in her story. Her role as a Nike N7 athlete will undoubtedly amplify Indigenous and Polynesian communities' voices, spotlighting their rich cultures and the importance of inclusivity in sports.

For those looking to support Pili and the N7 initiative, Nike offers a range of gear that embodies the program's spirit. Fans can shop the latest N7 collections, which feature designs inspired by Indigenous artistry and culture, knowing that their purchases contribute to a more significant cause.
