The Kokom scarf or Ukrainian Scarf are a symbol of relations of the Indigenous peoples supporting Ukrainian settlers that arrived to Canada. These scarves were traded among Indigenous and Ukrainian women. There are many similarities between our cultures and the scarf today resembles our unity. Indigenous peoples now wear these scarves with our traditional regalia and in our everyday lives.

For every scarf purchase, we will donate $5 CAD to support Ukraine through the Red Cross.
