About Wachiya

Wachiya means "Hello" in Cree.

We are an online store that focuses on Cree arts and crafts products from Eeyou Istchee. Each piece is unique and made with care and attention to detail and represents the artist’s background and expertise in creating traditional arts and crafts.

We source authentic Eeyou products directly from Eeyou producers and through the Cree Native Arts and Crafts Association, which ensures fair return to producers.

As a social enterprise, we actively prioritize community benefits and social impact over private profit, while expanding the market share for Eeyou producers. Wachiya is a part of the Cree Native Arts and Crafts Association, a not-for-profit organization, which aims to preserve, revitalize and support Cree culture by developing a social economy for Eeyou producers.

We are excited to share Wachiya with the world!
