These Broken ƛ̓áqva earrings with their abalone in-lay are elegant, light-weight, and on posts. They're a symbol of reclaiming. Reclaiming everything that was taken and attempted to be taken from us: our culture, our land, our waters, our connection to spirit, our songs, our language, our ceremonies, our children, our food, our knowledge systems, our relationships, our health, and so much more!
