NEVAEH REI HUEL
14-year-old Nevaeh Rei Huel is a non-registered member of the Cowessess First Nation, located in Treaty 4 Territory of Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. She comes from a long line of residential school survivors whose descendants are nêhiyâw, Anishinaabe, and Métis Peoples. Nevaeh was forced into the child family service system at a young age, where she connected with her strong cultural values and traditions. During this time, Nevaeh found her voice through art. She now uses art as a form of healing and expression when she cannot find the words. Nevaeh is passionate about using art to communicate what is often unspoken, unacknowledged, and unseen. She is currently attending the Scott Collegiate High School Police Academy. Once completed, Nevaeh will serve her community by becoming a female Indigenous police officer. However, art will forever be something she connects to express what she processes. Nevaeh fully represents what it means to break intergenerational trauma cycles and walk on the red road. Her art expresses the issues that have shaped the essence of who she is today: a fierce and passionate advocate for her community.
Hi there! I'm Dany, your Modern Mystic friend, I'm an spiritually experienced Leo with a free, cosmic & laid back spirit. A proud and strong Native American Descendent, an animal lover, a courageous soul and a caring and proud mommy of two girls but most importantly I'm a modern woman dedicated full time to supporting and empowering other women through this platform with the help of different metaphysical tools, crystals, smudging products and spiritual knowledge; helping to make us stronger, independent and more confident day by day. OUR STORYMagic Brands was born of my spiritual practice and journey and a love of making sustainably and ethically harvested smudge sticks for myself, my family and friends. I was drawn towards spirituality and the metaphysical when I learned at a young age that I am gifted with a highly developed intuition. Because of this, I had to learn different practices and how to create different tools to develop and grow my spirit. As a Native American I was empowered by knowledgeable relatives and friends with similar gifts and energy to improve my spiritual mindfulness. With the years, as my spiritual practice and knowledge grew I also learned how to consciously manifest financial and romantic success, improve my spiritual and physical well-being, and enhance my mental clarity for astrology and mysticism purposes.As a grown experienced woman, I developed a passion to help others improve their lives which began by making smudging tools for loved ones to use for their daily practices, like home and space energy cleansing, meditation and intention setting. With my matured spiritual experience and knowledge, I proudly created Magic Brands which is currently empowering women and men all over the world to attract positivity in their lives, achieve their goals, reduce stress, anxiety and fears, and enrich their relationships with themselves, their loved-ones, the world, and others around them. OUR MISSION Magic Brands mission is to empower women all over the world to attract positivity in their lives, achieve their goals, reduce stress, anxiety and fears, and enrich their relationships with themselves, their loved-ones, the world, and others around them.Our purpose is to educate women about their spirituality, remove taboos and misinformation, cultivate interest by understanding spiritual practices, develop women’s self-esteem and self-confidence, spread consciousness about innate healing powers and connection to the spiritual, and provide the highest quality sustainably sourced metaphysical tools with positive intentions and love.I enjoy sharing my knowledge of sustainability, spirituality and energy through Magic Brands.

WORKING TO END OVER-HARVESTINGWhen you buy from our small and sustainable family business you support the important and necessary preservation of the sacred plant "White Sage" (Salvia Apiana). As caretakers of the planet, we're working to save botanicals from over-harvesting and extinction. An important portion of all proceeds goes toward replanting indigenous medicines and education about care and use. Thank you for supporting small and sustainable business like ours and for saying "NO" to non-sustainable businesses.We highly recommend adding "signature confirmation" to bulk sage orders to prevent mail theft or mis-deliveries!

TOMMY ORANGE is a graduate of the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts. An enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, he was born and raised in Oakland, California. His first book, There There, was a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize and received the 2019 American Book Award. He lives in Oakland, California.
Tommy Orange’s wondrous and shattering novel follows twelve characters from Native communities: all traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow, all connected to one another in ways they may not yet realize. Among them is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, pulling his life together after his uncle’s death and working at the powwow to honor his memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil, coming to perform traditional dance for the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American—grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism. Hailed as an instant classic, There There is at once poignant and unflinching, utterly contemporary and truly unforgettable.
SEVEN MOONS BOUTIQUE
Seven Moons Boutique began back when I was a little girl wanting to be an artist. I've wanted to be an artist my entire life and I've always known that I would be happiest creating. As a person and an artist, I am constantly evolving..sometimes that turns into brilliant works of art and sometimes that turns into half started things that never get finished. We all find our way, eventually. I live in the middle of Michigan with my fiance and my 4 year old daughter, Wyatt. We are soaking up every minute of this beautiful life. I am a one woman show, imagining and creating everything you see here...I find and see inspiration all around me, and draw on it daily. I just hope I can stay in this space and keep creating new things for all of you. Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at these pieces of my soul.Jessica
