Our mission is to connect tribal people, being Indigenous or non-Indigenous, as they continue to learn and celebrate their connection to their heritage

Who we are in 3 words:


1. Indigenous

Specifically, we are primarily members of the Anishnaabek nation of Curve Lake First Nation, but our team consists of a diverse group from the Iroquois, and Cree nations as well.

2. Contemporary

We are a young team of passionate, creative people who represent new thinking - with a mindset that anything is possible if you’re crazy enough to try.

3. Inclusive

As our traditional teachings have taught us, all nations on mother earth are equally connected to the creator, we have open arms and love for YOU no matter where you come from, or how you choose to be happy.

CONNECTING TRIBES


There are tribal people that are living across Turtle Island (North America) who feel a significant need to connect with their heritage, who they are, and with each other.

We are inclusive to all, meaning we don’t measure what percentage of lineage you have or how much ancestral native you are. If we can support you in your journey of feeling connected by learning and celebrating the indigenous culture - therefore growing as a human being - then we’ve done our job.
