In honour of the Indigenous Peoples that survived the residential school system and the thousands of children that never got a chance to grow up we will be selling Desert Rose stones and giving 100% of the profits to the Legacy of Hope Foundation. The LHF supports the ongoing healing process of all Residential School Survivors, and their families.
The Desert Rose, in myth, were said to be carved by Indigenous warriors who returned from the spirit world. The roses were scattered over the earth so that the home of the spirits would be kept sacred. Desert Rose also harnesses feelings of love, calmness and protection making it an ideal stone to keep in your home.
June might have been National Indigenous History Month but we need to carry on the learning of the past and continue to do the necessary work to build a better future for the First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. We all have the ability to make a difference. So let's do it.
