Next Generation Enamel Pin

Categories: ,
The future generation is held safely on our cradleboard pin designed by Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe)! The original baby carrier, the cradleboard or “dikinaagan” in Ojibwemowin, comes from a time, much like today, when children were kept close and part of everyday life. Adorned with care and beauty, the dikinaagan remains a family’s prized possession that’s passed on from baby to baby. Wear this pin on your jean jacket, your jingle dress, your blazer lapel, and carry the future forward!

About 1.25″ x 1.125″

Two post closure
