In Support of Reconciliation
As I work through launching full collections, I will also be creating limited edition colourways with a portion of the profits going to a specified charity. There is no specific release date for colours; sometimes they will appear as part of a collection, sometimes not. My main focus is authenticity, while drawing inspiration amazing local indigenous artists. This, in and of itself, is part of the process.
This is my way of supporting the journey of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. We must keep talking, listening, and moving through this uncomfortable chapter, learning Canada's dark history and making the necessary changes together.
As we journey down the path of truth and reconciliation, we must seek peace. Peace is essential for Indigenous and non-indigenous people to communicate and enter into the process of restorative justice. As we stop and listen to the accounts, let us do so in the spirit of Peace.
Stop. And Listen.
Our country's history has been hidden from us, intensionally omitted from our educational institutions. We need to learn the truth. Forget the stereotypes and jokes. Forget all the excuses, forget your judgements. Stop. And listen.
Partial profits will be donated to the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (downiewenjack.ca). Thank you for your support.
