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.
