Our Storyboot project aims to revive the traditional arts by creating business-building partnerships with elders and craftspeople who fashion mukluks and moccasins the traditional way. From commissioned handworks within various com- munities, we produce a limited collection of replicas called Storyboots. From each Storyboot sold, 50% of the profit goes directly to the artist. Our hope is to play a role in helping aboriginal communities everywhere benefit from the knowledge of their ancestors and to keep their traditions alive.
