First Nations hockey in Canada isn’t just a sport, it’s a cultural celebration. Nothing beats a game where the stands are packed with fans cheering for their home Rez, Pow Wow playing on the speakers before plays, bannock and stew being served at the concession, sweetgrass getting lit, and smudging the sticks before a big game. Hockey is good medicine and that’s where the idea for Smudge the Blades apparel comes from.

"I want to celebrate First Nations hockey and be able to bring laughter and pride when wearing Smudge the Blades gear. It’s my dream to be able to give back to the Indigenous hockey community so that it can have the same positive impact on other Native kids that it had on me."
