Evan Mock may be one of the world’s most sought-after male models, landing campaigns with Calvin Klein and shows for Louis Vuitton, but the Oahu-born skater and surfer was still navigating sports endorsements when he stumbled into a very 21st-century industry meet-cute: At a North Shore kickback in 2019, contemporary artist Tom Sachs clocked Mock’s pink hair and asked him to say hi to his friend in a skate video. The friend turned out to be Frank Ocean, and the video went viral. Now the 23-year-old has traveled with Travis Scott on tour, and not only does he have his own clothing brand, Sorry in Advance, he worked with Justin Bieber on a line too.

Queen Cockacoeske’s father was Opechancanough, Powhatan’s brother. Although Queen Cockacoeske had a son named John West, he wasn’t qualified to be paramount chief because of Pamunkey tradition. Queen
