the moose hide campaign

$185

The inspiration for the campaign came to co-founders Paul Lacerte and his daughter Raven in 2011 when they were hunting together on their traditional Carrier territory. They were close to the Highway of Tears in northern British Columbia, where so many women, particularly Indigenous women, have gone missing or been murdered.

Reflecting on the sorrow of this setting, they brought down a moose that would help feed the family for the winter and decided to use its hide to create the very first moose hide pins.

Since then, the campaign has grown into a recognized nationwide anti-violence movement, with thousands of participating communities, schools and organizations. Over two million moose hide pins have now been distributed in Canada and across North America.
