Indigenous Brands to Support Now and Forever (Part 1)
Supporting Indigenous brands is not a trend, it’s a way to invest in a culture that has historically been silenced. June marks National Indigenous History Month, which recognizes the history, heritage and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada.
Ways to show your support include investing in artists and designers with Indigenous roots and being open to learning about the meaning behind what you’re wearing. You can also show your support by learning how to be an ally, repatriation and signing petitions for the government to honour the rights of Indigenous communities.
Another petition to sign in light of the Lost Children of Residential Schools can be found here.
