THE DESIGN & COLOUR STORY
As the sea nurtures people from all walks of life, mermaids appear in past myths and folklore from around the world. Their stories are as colourful as the people who tell them. Long before European settlers came to the new world, bringing their tales of mermaids with them, the indigenous folk across turtle island already told stories of their own about the fish people who lived in their oceans, rivers and lakes. In Inuit mythology, Sedna is the goddess of the sea and mother of marine animals, her sacrifice brought an abundance of food to her people. In Anishinaabe folklore, the Nibiianaabe are a race of water spirits. Mermaids and merman are also used as a clan symbol in the Ojibwe tribe.
