Against Lakota Products sign now

HPI Health Products (LaKOTA Products):

We, the undersigned, ask that LaKOTA stop appropriating and raping First Nations culture.

According to information on the LaKOTA webpage, the products use some natural ingredients originally used by First Nations. There is no justification for labeling the products Lakota, aside from attempting to cash in on First Nations culture.

Traditional First Nations practices set forth that healing and medicines come forth from the Creator. They cannot be bought and sold. They are sacred. If they belong to someone, they belong to the rich heritage of the First Nations, within collective ownership. The Lakota company has stolen medicine from the First Nations and then used First Nations culture to brand and profit from the product.

Being founded by a Canadian Mйtis does not give Rick Stewart sole ownership to the collective knowledge of First Nations. Floyd Red Crow Westernmans appearance in the commercials, similarly, does not sanction the exploitation of traditional First Nations healing and traditions.

Stealing sacred knowledge of healing and of tradition, and profiting from such knowledge, is morally reprehensible. It serves to further racial divides within Canada and demonstrates that profits are more important than tradition, heritage and respect for all peoples.

We ask that you cease your campaign of plundering First Nations symbols and medicines for monetary gain.

Sincerely,
