Featuring 6 mm red onyx, white jade, black onyx and black lava stones | Ships for $3
This bracelet helps tell a story of Seven Generations.
When a child is forcefully removed from their home and sent to a Residential School, the affected Seven Generations include the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents left behind, that child's future children, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. The 7th generation affected is of course that child themselves. The 7 red onyx (orange) centre stones represent these Seven Generations.
The 2 white jade stones represent the child's parents. The 3 black onyx beside the two white jade stones represent the child's other family. The other 3 black onyx represent the other children at the Residential School.

About the Cycle of Ceremonies Project
The Cycle of Ceremonies project is a series of workshops geared towards First Nations who have never had any kind of language or cultural upbringing - little to no exposure to the traditional longhouse community. We want to be able to bridge the gap we see in the community in terms of our ceremonies and culture, provide a safe environment to learn about ceremonies, sacred and sensitive topics, some of the language involved, ask questions and get clarification from knowledgeable community members and faithkeepers.
How the funds will be used
After the cost of supplies and labour has been deducted funds will go to the language project and will be used for resource development and facilitator fees in order to provide the best possible experience for those wanting to re-connect, re-claim and establish their sense of identity as Ogwehoweh people.
