The Creator's Shelf
UPDATE: Congratulations to Issac Two White Feather!
He has completed the Youth Ambassador program with
The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund!
This program offers youth / young adult participants the
opportunity to gain practical work experience, network, strengthen 21st-century skills, and gain leadership experience while learning about Canada’s true history with residential schools.
Throughout the 4-week leadership training program, they
will be supported to become champions of reconciliation in
their schools and / or communities.
The Creator’s Shelf is a partnership effort of Issac Two White Feather from Saugeen First Nation and Settler Ally Lori Gentle Eagle from Niagara Falls. Crafting helps us to open our hearts,
calm our bodies and connect us to spirit. It began as just another healthy distraction that supported Two White Feather’s efforts to
manage symptoms of mental health and addictive behaviours.
Much like his Father, Issac has a particular interest in working
with his hands and building with wood. Lori fondly remembers
times in her childhood spent with her Grandmother, making dolls
with dried apples or embroidering table cloths with blessings left behind by those who gathered together during holiday meals each year. From her work as a Counsellor / Advocate and Soul
Worker/ Circle Facilitator, she knows the healing value
of creative expression.
On The Creator’s Shelf, you will find items infused with spirit
from Indigenous and Wise Woman (Goddess) traditions. We respectfully seek a lot of our supplies from the natural world
and let Mother Earth be our guide. We then come together
to breathe life into the creation and to share the meaning
or teachings that accompany it, either on paper or in one of our Crafting With A Conscience Workshops. Custom work
will always be considered as we believe,
‘one of a kind is the best find’!
We love to showcase other artists who use their medium in
healing ways. And we believe in giving back to community.
We contribute what we can of the craft sales to support the
build efforts of A Womb With a View; our peer support,
land based healing space that will offer crisis intervention, programming, respite for First Nations youth and/or
their caregivers while they are on the Red Road to recovery.
