“I am so inspired and thrilled to be working with one of Edmonton’s most established shoe companies, Kunitz Shoes, to create my FIRST collection of Indigenous inspired footwear!

What an opportunity to showcase the beauty and traditions of the Indigenous people here in Treaty 6 territory, creating another ground breaking example of reconcili-ACTION here in Edmonton. These designs are inspired by the traditional teachings and languages of the First Nations and Métis people.”

Kiteyihtâkosiwin Boot
The act of being honored

Lance Cardinal and Kunitz Shoes created this boot to recognize the lasting and ongoing effects of violence against indigenous peoples and support a way forward as an act of reconcilACTION. We hope to bring attention to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls movement with this iconic MMIWG Boot.

All proceeds from sales of the Kiteyihtâkosiwin Boot will be donated to “The Creating Hope Society” to support their work with survivors and their families in the Edmonton area.
