This shirt is meant to honour the chicken dance, a sacred style of dance originating in the North-Western prairies of Canada and the USA among the Blackfoot and Cree nations. The design is of a proud male dancer awaiting Grand Entry while in full chicken regalia. It is printed with white and metallic silver, colourfast water-based inks, on a pre-washed soft cotton shirt. Colour - black.
Unisex sizes S-2XL
Why we switched to water-based inks:
As Indigenous people, we are stewards of the land, we need to lead by example. So from this point forward, we are walking the talk. No more toxic solvents or inks on any of our new shirts. We now use water based inks exclusively! No solvents or chemicals! Now printed on soft premium cotton shirts. Unlike typical screen printing, where plastisol ink is layered on top of the shirt, these inks are printed right into the fabric of the shirt. After washing a few times, you will not feel a heavy layer of ink, like most printed t-shirts, just soft cotton.
This is our small part in keeping our water clean for generations to come. We know you feel the same, and we hope you show your support at our online store or at our booth on the powwow trail. Miigwech/Nya:wen/Thank you!
