♥ Tribute to Autumn Peltier: Anishinaabe-kwe young woman and a member of the Wikwemikong First Nation and an internationally recognized advocate for clean water. Peltier addressed world leaders at the UN General Assembly on the issue of water protection at the age of thirteen in 2018. ""I do what I do for the water because water is sacred," says Peltier, who stresses the role water plays in sustaining all life and its unique relationship to women as life-givers". 

 

Mami Watta is an artistic movement reconnecting with traditional knowlege, producing unique styles of jewelry and accessories that support the artisanship and hardwork of our Indigenous artists.

This wearable artwork has been produced by artisans from the Embera Chami tribe of Colombia. It carries hours of work, calculation and imagination. Through the beadworks we can see a lot of references to colours from the natural environment and the Embera Cosmovision.
