Supporting native Canadians: the First Nations. Since we visited Canada earlier this year I’ve been wanting to purchase something supporting traditional crafts. I had no idea that there were aboriginal peoples living in Canada; facing the same difficulties they have faced elsewhere in the world… I guess I’d just never thought about it. 700 000 people that I just hadn’t even realised existed.
There were lots of tacky tourist items available in the shops in Niagara Falls, but I wanted to know I’d actually be supporting genuine trade that was run by members of the First Nation. Today I bought myself a little treat from Silvertalks website to do just this.
