These NON medical grade masks are in no way a replacement for Social Distancing and Hand Washing, but research shows with proper use cloth masks may offer some benefit. They are not intended to be a replacement for medical grade PPE and no claims are being made that they are. It is advisable to wash this mask before using as well as after wearing.

Due to hygiene concerns these are FINAL SALE

The WHO and CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Our best protection to keep safe and healthy is to not touch our faces, frequent hand washing and social distancing. The public practice of wearing a cloth face mask can help slow the spread of the virus and keeps the limited supply of medical grade masks available for our health care workers and first responders.

When wearing cloth masks be sure to:

    • Wash hands before placing mask on your face
    • To remove, pull on the band behind one ear and 'peel' off across your face. If you can't wash right away, place mask in an area that can be sanitized later
    • Wash mask in soap and warm water and hang to dry
    • Wash your hands after touching or removing your worn mask

Artwork Stories:

Tree of Life

Otter and Bear were chosen to push the first Tree of Life pole (Grandmother Cedar) from the earth’s centre through the surface, forming the first channel of communications between above and below. It roots in the underworld and it’s trunk passes trough the natural world and it’s branches ascend up into the sky world. Posts placed by medicine men, women near the entrance of the Midewigun (lodge) in ceremonies represented the tree of life and it’s restorative powers.

Turtle • Mishiike

Represents to our people the Mother Earth we stand upon, sustaining us with constancy, resiliency and generosity. We are cared for by our Earth Mother with her blessings of food, clothing, shelter, and medicine. Turtle said “with the help of the Great Spirit we can make a new land for the Anishinabek.” Muskrat placed the earth on the center of Turtle’s back and the winds blew from the four directions. As the winds blew, they became stronger and the small ball of earth on the Turtle’s back began to grow and it formed an island in the water. The winds did not subside for days and the island got bigger and bigger, yet Turtle still held the new land, the young earth, on it’s back. Just like all the Turtles before they carried their young protectively on their backs.

Bear • Makwa

Makwa stands for the love and care of children, the elderly and the downtrodden. Later as guardians, Makwa clans were the ones who patrolled the woods around the community to watch for danger.

Spirit of the Story • Auttissookaun

Auttissookaunuk, the muses that dwell at the Earth’s four cardinal points, North, South, East and West. They assist storytellers in the creation of stories.
