Tipi Village built in Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation in response to Walmart and Old Navy’s clothing design

A mother has set up an awareness village in her Cree community in response to a story that exploded last week on Twitter and Facebook of a graphic that appeared on a onesie sold in a Walmart store in Niagara Falls Ont.

A picture was posted of an infant’s onesie with the text I Still Live At Home.

The text was accompanied by the graphic that included an arrow and two tipis.

People were outraged given the disproportionate number of Indigenous children that are taken from their homes.

“I was quite disappointed and offended by what it said on the shirt,” said Natashia Moodie. “And having our tipi on the shirt as well, you now our tipis are very sacred and we take that very seriously.”
