In partnership with the Office of Indigenous Relations comes this new collection of Indigenous products featuring a design from local Indigenous artist, Alanah Astehtsi Otsistohkwa (Morningstar) Jewell of Morningstar Designs.

The artwork is a representation of the wildlife and eco-system of the Grand River. The design depicts herons taking flight, drawing energy from the Great Tree of Peace and florals growing beside the river bed, flowing up towards the moon, which controls the waters and has a deep connection to the Grand River. The elements come together to signify the cyclical and reciprocal relationships between the wildlife, the moon and the river.

This black crew features an element of the artists design on the right chest The White Pine Tree. The White Pine Tree, also known as the Great Tree of Peace, symbolizes the unity between the nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, which includes the Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, Seneca and Onondaga clans. This tree was selected by the Peacemaker, who was sent by the Creator to bring the teachings of peace. The white pine is visually distinct because of its needles, which grow in clusters of five and represent the five nations brought together in unity. The root system for the Great Tree of Peace is also symbolic and represents the directions North, South, East and West. It is said that other nations who follow this root system can find the Great Tree of Peace and join the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.

Associated with: guidance, protection, truth, new beginnings and cleansing of the past.
