Quw'utsun' Made was founded by arianna in 2016 in the small tribal community of swinomish, wa. arianna & respected siiem Brandon made a few batches of candles and salves and travelled to local pow-wows & native art markets. through these local events arianna connected with Northwest Indian college & was given the opportunity to work as a
traditional plant knowledge keeper at the college &
Little Bear Creek, Retirement & Assisted Living in lummi, WA.
In lummi arianna learned the importance of providing good medicine for elders through sustainable skin care. each visit arianna would see
the impact the plants had on the elder's wellness.
they were reunited with teachings they had to give up generations ago
that aided in the healing of their diabetes & arthritis.
Her connection to devils club & nettles inspired her product line.
from these early days with the elders until now, arianna has been travelling all over turtle island sharing plant knowledge & her products
with both the indigenous community & settler guests.
