This collection speaks to the resiliency of Indigenous Women.
Breaking the Cycle
Indigenous women face a tremendous amount of barriers from inter-generational trauma to identity issues, racism, discrimination, sexism, and domestic violence.
This collection really speaks to breaking the cycle, and to the strength and resilience of Indigenous women.
Commitment to Mother Earth
We chose to use Eco-fleece, bamboo, organic cotton, recycled polyester materials as our way of showing respect to Mother Earth. We chose to reduce our environmental footprint, by utilizing sustainable materials. This is a commitment that we are making with all our items moving forward. The materials and quantity reflect the price.
Where it's Made
The items are also made on Turtle Island (in Toronto, Ontario), on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
We utilize a non-Indigenous supplier for these items, however, our supplier is aligned with our values and is committed to fair trade and good environmental practices. This collection is 100% sweatshop free, and on Turtle Island soil. All the printing is done in Saskatoon by local small businesses.
Who can wear SheNative
This collection is not only for Indigenous peoples, with the exception of the "Indigenous Boss Babe" Top - this top is specifically made and for Indigenous Women to express their "boss" nature and to take pride in their sexuality.
The rest of this collection can and should be worn by all women, as a show of solidarity with Indigenous women and/or to represent your own personal meaning of the word "resilient".
