On today’s interview, I’m honored to welcome April Mitchell-Boudreau, the Indigenous owner and designer behind Lofttan, a unique jewelry brand rooted in the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples.

April shares her journey from her creative childhood to awakening the inner creator in all of us through her sustainable, handcrafted pieces that blend traditional materials with modern aesthetics.


April delves into the inspiration behind Lofttan, the importance of connecting with our ancestral roots through adornment, and how she uses the teachings of the Medicine Wheel to craft memorable experiences. She highlights the joy found in Indigenous culture, and how this joy influences her creations and interactions.


We talked about:
