PROJECT: TOTEM HEALERS TEA, 2018
The wisdom of the medicine woman
My family descends from Chief Cisco and a line of First Nations medicine women within the Skuppah tribe of interior British Columbia, Canada. This project was inspired by herbalist teas often administered to heal ailments and colds.
The design featured on the Totem Tea tins was inspired by the totem poles my grandmother carved, Coast Salish relief work, and the medicine bible passed down to me. It was an honour to learn and create this project, to celebrate First Nations entrepreneurs and my culture. Special acknowledgement to Shaun Peterson's relief history channel.
