Earth Mother - Mizzu-kummik-quae
The Earth is our mother and provides sustenance. She is our teacher, constantly nurturing, telling and showing us what we need to know. Water is her life blood. It nourishes her, and purifies her. From her breath grows the tree of life. Our ancestors as learners had but to open their eyes and ears and all their senses to the teachings of the land to take into their beings what lessons earth mother had to impart.
A fire burns inside all of us. The hummingbirds fire burns very bright. The bird clans are those who speak for others, the hummingbird whispers.
Little Moose - Moozoons
The Anishinaabe consider moose to be good omens. Dreaming about moose indicated good things to come.
Water is Life
A reminder of the importance of water for the continuity of all life on earth, and future generations to come.
- Donald Chretien
The microfiber material is very comfortable to wear all day if needed. Yes, I need to adjust it up my nose occasionally when I talk, as as with any other mask I wear. I have found that if I gently pull the ear straps up and back to make the upper part of the mask higher then my glasses don't fog up....the material is very thin to help with this. I feel good wearing them and many compliments received....and the odd look with a smile. I appreciate the beautiful art and believe this is good energy. I feel confident wearing them in and out of places and will often wipe the exterior with an alcohol cloth when I return to my vehicle. They wash easily with a good liquid soap and dry quickly. The only masks I wear..other than surgical masks at work.
Love, love love the masks. However, I don't recommend them for times when you will be speaking a lot, as the motions of speaking tend to pull the mask downward (on me at least) so they travel below my nose. They're perfectly fine when I go shopping etc. and don't need to speak to anyone. Really love the designs!!!
The colours are beautiful and the designs amazing. I use mine daily and have received many compliments on them. I go water walking each morning and they are perfect for in the pool.
soft, comfortable and stay put. Artwork is exquisite!
Very comfortable stylish masks. I love the designs. I always get compliments about them and I’m always very glad and proud to say that I’m supporting First Nations artists in their work on these items!
These masks are great. I love the artwork and they fit comfortably. The only reason I didn’t give five stars is they would be a bit better with some kind of adjustable ear loop as they’re a little big on me, but it’s an easy fix with a safety pin or some sewing.
The designs are vibrant and colourful. The fit is okay but could be a bit more form fitting.
We really love these beautiful masks from a very talented artist. Top quality and very tasteful.
Very comfortable and light weight and stylish.
