Heart Berry unfurled the first ever Ojibwe flag this sunday on Indigenous People's Eve with Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan and House Representative Jamie Becker-Finn.
This flag follows the fundraiser with our friends at the MN Dark Clouds for Minnesota Indian Women's Sexual Assault Coalition last year where our supporters and community raised $9,430 for MIWSAC to create a Survivor's Fund from Crewneck Sales!
We loved this so much we took it further and made a flag to wave in the Wonderwall at Allianz Field, the home of the Minnesota United Loons, Minnesota's MLS team. We cheered on our team to a 2-0 win!
The MN Dark Clouds, Minnesota's oldest and largest fan club and Heart Berry, Minnesota's fastest growing Ojibwe brand proudly collaborated to raise funds for Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center.

MIWSAC plans to create a Survivor's Fund with the $8443 raised with your support to aid survivors of sex trafficking. We are so proud of your support and the love that was generated around this innovative collaboration.
You can always contribute and support MIWSAC's work at their home
