We have the great privilege to live and work in ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, amiskwacîwâskahikan (Beaver Hills House, colonially known as Edmonton), a traditional meeting ground, gathering place, and travelling route of the Nêhiyawak (Cree), Anishinaabe (Saulteaux), Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. We are bound to these communities through our common humanity and a trust that we know as Treaty 6.
This collection is based on our belief that participating in and upholding treaty is a sacred duty for all of us, particularly Muslims, who are called to uphold the trusts we have made (Qur'an 8:27). Treaty is an amanat, a sacred trust, pledged between us and our siblings on this land, witnessed by Allah, that we are duty-bound to uphold.
The collection includes mugs & shirts (for kids and adults!) featuring the words 'treaty is an amanat'. Behind the words sits our original, mirrored calligraphic representation of al-Haq. One of the 99 names of Allah, al-Haq means the Truth, an acknowledgement of the continuing role Truth is playing for us all as we come to terms with the realities of living on Turtle Island.
100% of every purchase made from this collection will be donated to Treaty 6 Community Outreach, a grassroots mutual aid network in amiskwaciwâskahikan focused on advocacy, street outreach, and harm reduction.
