i am currently a full time beader with chronic pain conditions, as well as someone with intergenerational trauma due to the impact of residential schools on my family.
as someone with a lot of medical and therapeutic needs it is challenging being self employed.
self care expenses like registered massage, acupuncture, salves for my tendons, and just pure rest days are not often reasonably in my budget.
your support can help me to take good care of myself in a tangible way ❤️
i am a mixed Indigenous (x̄á’isla/british) beadworker currently living on unceded stolen territories in so called bc canada. i bead full time as my job. it is a real effort to decolonize my life and learn my language ❤️
