This Native American Heritage Month, we reflect on the rich cultural heritage of Indigenous communities in the United States. Simultaneously, we acknowledge the historical injustices that have led to disenfranchisement and poverty among Indigenous people.
The history of Indigenous people in the United States is fraught with forced removals from ancestral lands, suppression of languages and cultures, and systemic discrimination. These injustices continue to impact Indigenous communities today. Recognizing this history is the first step toward reconciliation and working to address ongoing disparities.
One of the most concerning issues facing Indigenous communities in the United States is poverty. Disproportionately high poverty rates, limited access to quality education and healthcare, and limited economic opportunities persist. These challenges have deep roots in historical injustices and require concerted efforts from society as a whole to overcome.
Supporting Indigenous Artisans
One impactful way to support Indigenous communities is by celebrating and promoting the incredible talents of Indigenous artisans. Our exquisite Honeycomb Calcite Coasters are handcrafted by Indigenous artisans using a rare stone found only in central Utah. The stone's natural patterns and hues vary slightly, making each coaster set a unique work of art.
This Native American Heritage Month, we invite you to join us in celebrating the richness of Indigenous cultures and supporting the work of Indigenous artisans. With each purchase of our Honeycomb Calcite Coasters, you not only acquire a beautiful and functional piece for your home but also contribute to the economic empowerment and preservation of Indigenous craftsmanship.
