As we build this important Collection of our FIRST NATIONS, we welcome suggestions for products. Please email us your thoughts and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Soft Toy and Puppet Collection already has many products suggested by First Nations as use for beginning dialogue with young children about animals that are important spiritually, and/or that live in historical First Nations/Indigenous land.
Children's Picture books included have a focus on natural, wild places, hopefully to encourage this important dialogue. Books written by celebrated Indigenous First Nations author, Margaret Olemaun Pokiak-Fenton have arrived. She is a Residential School survivor, and wrote about her experiences as a child.
We mourn her passing this past April at age 84. The legacy of her Children Books and the critical story they tell will live on. She knew, "that children's books have the power to shape your life story."
We also are sourcing Home and Health products made by First Nation/Indigenous Owned Companies. We are excited to carry beautiful soaps handmade by the Yukon Soaps Company. Thankyou for your patience and support as we strive to represent all Canadians. We must do better.
