To financially support and advocate for Indigenous Peoples to be leaders in the movement for sustainable and effective solutions to climate change, and for a peaceful, healthy and green future.
A contribution for a Canoe Foundation Paddle is a hand up for the earth and for those Indigenous Peoples on the front lines of climate change making a difference for all of us. A contribution is to acquire a symbol of engagement and support for Indigenous climate solutions.
Shown below are just some of our paddle collections; click for more info/images.
OUR FUNDRAISING and ADVOCACY are EFFORTS to BRING TOGETHER CULTURAL HEALING from BOTH SIDES of the COLONIAL DIVIDE with a SHARED GOAL of SEEKING PEACE with NATURE and EACH OTHER.
Our connection to the water is that we have all tasted the same waters as our ancestors...and as our neighbours...and as the other inhabitants on Mother Earth.
Proceeds from our fundraising are directed towards legal defence funds for Indigenous Peoples in Canada to defend their rights and the integrity of lands and cultures.
