Every Child Matters Feather Project
With your continued support, the 2021 and 2022 Feather Projects collectively raised an impressive $225,000. The proceeds went directly to Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions to aid Indigenous students in their educational pursuits. This year’s campaign, features our new wearable lapel pin, with the same meaningful design as the 2022 feather designed by local artist, Jonas Thompson of the Cegakin First Nation.
“I designed this feather with a tenderness in my heart for the children that were forced to attend residential school.
The various representations of their journey home to the spirit world are found in the boy and the girl, the moccasins that walked them home, the sun that guided them, and their wings that allow them to visit us here, in the earth world.
I think it is important that we remember these children as they were, and always will be – in their traditional clothing, braided, gifted (represented with their feathers), strong, valued, and loved. We cherish our children – Gilesbie iyuhana te unhinabi. We will always cherish our children.”
The pins will be sold at a price of $15 per feather, plus shipping and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Indigenous students attending trades programs throughout Saskatchewan.
Feathers will be on sale exclusively at www.prometal.ca/feathers-2023
