Introducing this very special “Not Forgotten” Porcelain Mug – a captivating creation by Maxine Noel, a distinguished Sioux artist. This exquisite mug, with a capacity of 295ml/10 fl. oz., is not merely a vessel for your favourite beverages but a profound tribute to the strength and resilience of Indigenous women.
Designed by Maxine Noel, whose Sioux name, Ioyan Mani, means “to walk beyond,” this mug beautifully embodies the spirit of her gift – the ability to perceive and share insights into realms beyond our immediate understanding. Maxine’s art is a profound expression of this gift, a visual language that resonates with depth and meaning.
The “Not Forgotten” collection pays homage to the vital roles played by our mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, and grandmothers in shaping our communities and cultures. It serves as a poignant reminder that these remarkable women are always honoured and never forgotten.
What sets this mug apart is not just its striking design but also its purpose. Proceeds from the “Not Forgotten” collection contribute to supporting the Native Women’s Association of Canada, an organization dedicated to empowering and advocating for Indigenous women.
Maxine Noel’s outstanding contributions to the world of art were recognized with the prestigious appointment to the Order of Canada in 2019. This mug is not just any mug; it’s a piece of art that carries with it the weight of cultural significance and the power to make a positive impact.
By bringing the “Not Forgotten” Porcelain Mug into your daily routine, you not only enjoy a beautifully crafted piece but also become part of a movement that celebrates and supports the strength and resilience of Indigenous women. Embrace the spirit of Ioyan Mani and “walk beyond” ordinary experiences with this extraordinary mug.
