Treaty 4 Models
My name is Tracey Grienke...
and I'm a treaty 4 member of the peepeekisis reserve in Saskatchewan. I don't reside on the reserve and was raised in Alberta so I don't know much about my Indigenous culture due to residential schools. I have taken it upon myself to learn about my Indigenous roots through courses on Aboriginal studies and reading books on the culture and talking to elders. I have learned that we were once a very proud, self-sufficient culture with great values until the Canadian government took over and ruined a whole culture and lives for many generations.
I started LET THEM PLAY apparel to help reeducate people on the Indigenous culture and each clothing item is full of Indigenous symbols. Each t-shirt comes with a card explaining what the symbols mean. My hope with these t-shirts is to help educate people about Indigenous culture even if it takes one t-shirt at a time.
