Silkit donates a portion of the profits of every sale to the Indigneous Literacy Foundation.
Storytelling is a rich part of Indigenous culture. Stories help us remember the past, relate with the future, and tell us who we are. When you lose your language, you lose your ability to connect with your culture and history. You lose interesting phrases and vocabulary, ideas, and agency. The ILF not only promotes literacy in English, but also translates many stories into traditional languages.
In order to achieve true equality and equity in opportunity, the ability to read and write and communicate not only keeps culture alive, but empowers individuals to learn, grow and instigate change.
We will be regularly sharing with you the amounts we donate, and together we can help close the gap in Indigenous Literacy.
