Indigenous-Made Beaded Items

Thanks to an anonymous donor for the materials, Indigenous Intergenerational Survivors on our Board have made Beaded Items, with 100% of the profits being directed to us. For more information or to purchase, email

Pins for hope

Similar to our journeys of reconciliation, each one is unique in the story it tells. Some have incomplete beadwork, symbolizing residential school or 60s scoop Indigenous children who never came home. Other pins have fully beaded flowers representing survivors who returned while honouring their strength and resilience.

Each pin uses Moose-hide coloured fabric to represent the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The beading on each pin contains different colours. In addition, the beads on the border reflect each person’s journey of reconciliation. Finally, the back of each pin is coloured felt, which varies in colour for the same reasons.

Partially beaded are $30 and fully beaded are $50.

Earrings for hope

Our Earrings for Hope are hand woven with beaded fabric and backed with moosehide skin. Each pair are crafted on hypoallergenic stainless steel shepherd hooks. Each set is $40.

The matching pin and earrings for hope set (partially beaded) are $60.

Ribbon Skirt Pins and Earrings

Each pin and earring set has ribbons representing ribbon skirts. The ribbons go across each piece horizontally. Each piece conveys special meaning to the wearer.

Partially beaded pins are $30, fully beaded pins are $50, and matching pin/earring combos (partially beaded) are $60.
