Good Life, Sovereignty, Treaty Rights, and How Blankets Play a role

Our Good Life Blanket celebrates the Sovereignty, Treaty Rights, and Good Life that tribes have retained, worked for, and maintain for our communities.  

"The word in the 1854 Treaty which ceded most of northern Minnesota for what we Retained is "Mino Bimaadiziiwin" or "Good Life."  Our ancestors thought about us and wanted us to maintain this good life.  So when we are working to gain access to traditional foods, ways of life, land, and language, we are exercising our rights to that good life."  says Howes, CEO and Artist 

As tribally owned businesses we are working to build Economic Sovereignty for individuals, communities, tribes, and families.  When we support Inspired Natives and Not Native Inspired we support and enrich that Good Life for Everyone.

Our latest blanket celebrates the story of wild rice harvesting, netting and spearing of walleye, and the plants we need for that good life.  Woven In House at Eighth Generation, we are so proud of this new blanket.
