CAN NON-INDIGENOUS PEOPLE WEAR YOUR EARRINGS/ MERCHANDISE?
Answer from The Koorie Circle:
"We make our pieces for everybody to wear and celebrate! We create our earrings with our mob in our heart and everyone in our mind. So, by all means rock our earrings, we love nothing more. All our products are 'ally friendly' with the exemption of of 'mob only' Sovereign Earrings.
Purchasing and wearing merchandise such as jewelry, clothing and tote bags from Aboriginal businesses is one really practical way allies can support the Indigenous Community."
