Our Mission

To Keep Culture and Tradition Alive One Bead at a Time


Translation: Sting of Beads

Tânśi, Nicole Boucher, nitisiyihkâson amiskwaciwâskanikan ohci niya. I am a first nations woman from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada who owns and operates mikisâpiy online bead store.  

Mîkisâpiy is a cree word that means string of beads. Beadwork has and continues to play a significant role in sharing indigenous culture and history. Beading has been used to highlight the resiliency of our people, culture, history, and communities. Beading allows us to share out traditional knowledge and let the world know that we are still here. 

I began this business after identifying a gap in the market for quality indigenous focused beading supplies at a reasonable and competitive price.

I hope that you enjoy your shopping experience with mîkisâpiy and look forward to supporting you on your beading journey!

Our Values:

Community, Commitment, Quality, and Simplicity
