Proceeds from our Blackfoot colouring book sales and “Children are our Sacred Bundle” orange shirt sales are donated as a sponsorship to the Children are our Sacred Bundle Conferences. These indigenous grassroots conferences are organized by Karen English from Kamotaan Consulting, a Piikani Blackfoot woman. These events bring together Indigenous elders, ceremonialists and professionals working with Indigenous children to share knowledge with native and non-native people. Participants come to start working together to develop solutions that can enhance current programs, policies or parenting techniques that affect Indigenous children. It utilizes a unique grassroots solutions-based approach to finding ways to improve the situation for Indigenous children. Solutions come from collaborative experiential group exercises that are built on the knowledge shared by the many different knowledge keepers from Alberta and Montana.

A donation to the Orange Shirt Society is also made from the sale of these orange shirts.
