Every Child Matters Feather Project

With your continued support, from 2021 to 2023, the Feather Project collectively raised over $300,000!  The proceeds went directly to Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions to aid Indigenous students in their educational pursuits. Stay tuned for more details on the 2024 Feather Project!

Last year’s campaign, featured 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 were sold at a price of $15 per feather, plus shipping and a portion of the proceeds were donated to Indigenous students attending trades programs throughout Saskatchewan.

For those considering making a purchase this year, let’s also remember that the cause of “Every Child Matters” isn’t confined to a single day. Orange Shirt Day on September 30th is a reminder of the legacy and ongoing journey towards reconciliation. But let’s keep in mind that this cause deserves acknowledgment and action year-round. Wear your pin proudly as a daily reminder of unity and compassion.
