Standing Together designed by Kwakwaka’wakw Artist Curtis Wilson.
A killer whale is within the maple leaf and the red bands are each with a salmon design. Throughout my life, I have come to learn all the hardships and struggles that First Nations people have faced in this country. This design speaks for my love and visions of my heritage and the country I live in– standing together in support of each other.
The round coin purse is made from vegan leather, measuring 8.5 cm in diameter. There is an inner pocket and a secure gusset which keeps the coins from falling out. It can be zipped closed with a split ring puller. A label with the artist's signature is sewn inside the purse.
