This blog is based in Treaty 6 Territory, traditional and ancestral lands of many First Nations and Métis in Alberta. I’m a settler who lives, works, and plays in the Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton) area on Turtle Island (Canada). I’m committed to reconciliation. uplifting and supporting Indigenous communities and one way I do that is by highlighting Indigenous-owned artists, business owners, makers, events, and other experiences here on this blog and on social media.
