About Northern D'lights

Hello! Tansi! 

A little info about me and how Northern Dlights came to be! 

 I am 
Métis and was born and raised in the beautiful province of Saskatchewan (Treaty Territory 6), Canada, and because of this, I wanted a name for my shop to be something that reflects the land I was born and raised in and honours my Indigenous ancestors. 

 I take great pride in knowing that my 5th Great Grandfather, Cuthbert Grant Jr, was a prominent Métis leader and Healer in the early 19th century in Canada. He was known to have had considerable knowledge and experience in medicine was also one of the first people who started practicing modern medicine on the Plains. One of his medicine chests, along with his sword, is still on display at the Manitoba Museum in Winnipeg.

 Although many of my products are not considered to be healing, mainly due to Health Canada regulations, I can not make such claims, I do like to think that some part of my G-G-G-G Great Grampa's knowledge has been imparted on me, so don't be surprised if you see more products of this nature in the near future.


Thank you, Maarsi, for taking the time to visit and I hope you love my products as much as I love making them for you!
