Honor the Treaties – Limited Edition

$250.00

These are a limited edition release of our new 2024 Honor the Treaties earring. A copy of the cedar version, but with added abalone gemstone and ermine pelt – both cultural symbols of royalty.

The Honor the Treaties design is here in recognition of Treaty Day in Washington State. On January 22nd, 1855, the Treaty of Point Elliott was signed by more than 11 tribal nations in Mukilteo, WA. This group included the Lhaq’temish (Lummi) people, upon whose ancestral land we create our pieces. This treaty guaranteed the sovereign tribal nations who signed it rights to hunting and fishing, as well as reservations, and was necessary to the creation of Washington State.

Today, nearly 170 years later, Honor the Treaties acknowledges the systemic breaking of these treaties by the United States government. The Honor the Treaties earrings are here to resound the echo, “Will you remember the promises you’ve made to the people here today?”

Size: length 18-20 inches, width 3 inches
Material: acrylic or cedar
Hardware: silver plated stainless steel
