Ida Manuel – Tiny House Warriors
Cards $ 5
Ida Manuel, a Secwepmec mother and artist, creates each piece of her work in prayer with love. To raise funds for grassroots land protectors Tiny House Warriors.The Tiny House Warriors: Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory. Ten tiny houses are being built and placed strategically along the 518 km Trans Mountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law and jurisdiction and block access to this pipeline. The Tiny House Warrior movement is the start of re-establishing village sites and asserting our authority over our unceded Territories.Each tiny house will provide housing to Secwepemc families facing a housing crisis due to deliberate colonial impoverishment. Each home will eventually be installed with off-the-grid solar power. Donate at Tiny House Warriors.

Nightshift Poetry Book
curated by Valeen Jules and Jaz Whitford
The nighshift poetry book features queer Indigenous, Black, and People of Color creatives who bring healing to our communities and the land. We gathered these artists to honour their stories and deliver medicine to frontlines, elders, matriarchs, queers, lifegivers, and children. These are a few of many firekeepers of our hearts who will continue to fight for our sovereignty and write more poetry about it.
