Miskanawah Brand Story

Most of us live lives where we have people around us that show their love and support.

"We know what love and connection feels like as it has been given to us."


Most of us live lives where we have experienced traditions, some from our own families, and some from our religion or from where we live. These traditions and habits can be sometimes fun, sometimes sober but they all have meaning, and they piece together who we are, what we believe in, where we come from and what we stand for.

Most of us take our family ties and our traditions for granted. We don't know what it's like to not know any tradition or worst yet, to be made to feel shame for our traditions, and of who we are.

"Some of us have been forced to abandon our motherland, while others have had it taken from them."


We find ourselves in limbo. We're not in a familiar place anymore even if we grew up there. Our foundation is shaky. We don't know what it's like to have strong footing, to feel grounded and have a strong foundation to support us through the ups and downs of life. We feel lost, unsettled ... unfinished. We're made to feel ashamed, to feel less than others. We grow in distress, deprived of connection and in constant anxiety.
We don't know what it's like to be respected, appreciated and loved. We don't know how to build bonds with others and ourselves, our past and our history. We can't tell you what trust looks like but we long for it.

"We long for acceptance, for having someone who believes in us, even when we don't believe in ourselves."


We ache for connections. How can we have a life with meaningful connections? A life where we love and feel loved. Where we're respected and valued. A life where we're not judged but instead we're supported and encouraged to be who we are, to grow stronger and become who we want to become.
There are many pathways in life. Who can help me through mine? Who can help me navigate through the maze and find my truth and my future? Who can help me feel at peace and strong and proud of who I am and where I come from?

There are many pathways in life.
Who can help me through mine?
