Systemic racism remains a very real problem in Canada, particularly with regards to the indigenous people upon whose land our country has settled and whose rights our government has historically tried to suppress. Since September, Mi'kmaw lobster fishermen from Sipekne'katik First Nation in Nova Scotia have been the targets of harassment, threats and violence for employing their constitutionally affirmed treaty rights to obtain a moderate livelihood from their catches. The sovereignty of the Mi'kmaq is being threatened, as commercial interests try to interfere with nation-to-nation negotiations and non-native fishermen take it upon themselves to destroy first nations fishery equipment. We will be sending $16 CAD from each skein of Sovereign directly to Sipekne'katik First Nation to help them in their negotiations with the Canadian government, and to help them rebuild now that the actions of white fishermen and the inactions of white governance have impeded their ability to support themselves.

Note: this listing is priced per 1 skein.
