Seventies Spring Fling | Path of Souls | Miikana



The Ojibwe word “Miikana” means “the path”. As with most Anishinaabe words, it has a literal and a spiritual meaning. The path our souls take throughout life and after life is something sacred and something to reflect on. The offering of this design is to honour this sacred path. 

For many of us, our path may not always feel as though it is “straight”.. or maybe some feel it is “too straight”. We are curious how we can redefine this narrative. Can you define your own path outside of the constraints of the traditional paths society leads us to think we should walk? 

To go one step further, can you articulate the path of your life without using your job titles, your marital status, your parenthood status, the deaths of those you’ve loved? We tend to describe our paths solely with these traditional markers - what would your path look like to think outside these descriptors? As we peel these layers back, we can begin to understand the true Path of Our Souls.


This collection was inspired by a new design we created after finding a piece of beadwork from our great grandma. A floral that was perfect for our loom bracelets.

We all naturally put pressure and expectations on ourselves, us included when creating designs and collections.

But this collection flowed naturally after realizing the brown and orange daisy was just so 70’s! It’s supposed to remind us to have fun, to let loose and groove to our favourite old tunes.
