Miigwech for starting the conversation!


debwewin [truth.]

The syllabics are Ojibwe.

Debwewin means truth. Atrocities have been committed against the Indigenous people of Turtle Island since the beginning of colonization, more than 500 years ago. In recent years, more awareness has been generated due to horrific discoveries at residential schools throughout Canada. Those with Indigenous blood who have had their families suffer seek truth. Non-Indigenous people must not hide from the truth. The path to reconciliation requires the truth to be spoken and listened to.

Syllabics are at the forefront of our designs to indigenize colonized spaces. We encourage support from non Indigenous allies to help us start the conversation and draw attention to the beautiful Indigenous languages across Turtle Island.
