Buffalo Trucker Hat
One of our goals at ChicaDee is to create designs that will uplift and inspire people to connect with the land and the plants and animals that inhabit it.
With our new Bafloo trucker hat we celebrate the buffalo while also acknowledging its unfortunate, painful history.
Bafloo is Michif (Métis language) for Buffalo. Fifty million buffalo once travelled the North American plains. There were herds so vast that it took days to pass them. Along with the buffalo were the indigenous nations of the plains who lived in sacred reciprocity, relying on the buffalo for their food, clothing and ultimately their way of life. In a gutting, irreversibly tragic move, incoming settlers organized the slaughter of millions of buffalo to eradicate the food source and way of life of indigenous nations. Buffalo were causally shot from passing trains and the white bones of buffalo covered the land.
Our Bafloo trucker honours the buffalo and the indigenous nations that once lived in harmony with them.
Trucker: black brim - black mesh - snapback - one size fits all
What a beautiful hat - thank you so much - not sure how to attach the photo but the smile says it all. The hat compliments some of the beautiful artwork in the home- love it - thanks you so much
This Black Tusk hat is my go to for Coastal Mountain adventuring!
Great colours for an active outdoorsy person like me. Lite and breathable for theses hot summer days.
I’ve had people try to take, steal, buy, and trade my Chicadee Trucker Hats away from me. Soooo beautiful! This latest “Jellyfish” design is my favourite so far. Lots of compliments on this one.
Two years ago, my husband, our kids and I visited BC. The beautiful designs remind me of our trip and bring back happy memories. I also find the hat very comfortable to wear.
After accidentally throwing my husband's old hat (which he bought in BC two years ago) in the water in a fjord in Norway during our last vacation, I was super happy to be able to give him the Mount Robson hat as a "replacement" gift. He was delighted!
