Weaving Rainbows exists as a pathway for cultural thirval and survival for first nation, native artisan communities. Often the traditional artisans are also the cultural keepers of seeds, stories, lands and lifeways, when we support the artisans we uplift cognitive and biological diversity. First Nation peoples are the reason we still have biodiversity hotspots on the planet and their ways of living and understanding are crucial to how we will protect and grow biodiversity and the health of humanities thinking and living.
We offer a beyond fair trade model bringing weavings and artisan works from first nation communities to share with the wider world. We are rooted in relationships with native artisan communities and work with the artisans to host pilgrimages for people to widen their cultural and artistic appreciation.
