The tricolour prism pattern derived from my Nehiyaw family's traditional beadwork. It embodies the strong wisdom of the aunties; clean and clear ascending steps, balanced and mirroring our path forward. 

Next, the dentalium element hangs representing wealth redefined which results from the aunties wisdom. Dentalium, a conical tooth shell harvested on the Pacific Coast, traded inland for thousands of years and threaded into adornment, represents the wealth of our traditional commerce, thriving trade routes and kinship ties that are being rekindled. To me, wealth redefined is our language, health, healing, food, joy and land outside of the narrow colonial capitalistic definitions.
