Atlohsa Gifts Closure Announcement

Dear Community Friends and Partners,

We hope this message finds you in good health and spirits. On January 12, 2024, we communicated about temporary closures and forthcoming enhancements to Atlohsa Gifts, with the anticipation of embarking on an exciting phase of transformation aimed at enriching your experience with us. Upon further reflection and considering evolving priorities within Atlohsa Family Healing Services, we have reached a difficult yet pivotal decision. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent closure and dissolution of Atlohsa Gifts. We acknowledge this is a change in course from our previously shared plans for reopening and expansion.

This decision was not arrived at lightly. After thorough deliberation, it became clear that our resources and efforts must be redirected towards other vital areas of our mission to support and uplift Indigenous peoples and strengthen community. We understand this news may come as a surprise and we are profoundly grateful for your support, understanding, and flexibility during this period of transition.

To our valued patrons, artisans, and community partners, your unwavering commitment has been the foundation of our success since 2017, and for this, we are deeply appreciative. Since the start, your support has been the cornerstone of our success and has enabled us to make a meaningful impact within the Indigenous and broader communities. Though we close this chapter of Atlohsa Gifts, the spirit of collaboration, respect, and appreciation for Indigenous cultures will continue to guide us in our future endeavors.

As we navigate this transition, we are committed to ensuring a smooth and respectful closing process. For any ongoing concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at

Chi-Miigwech, Yaw^ko, Anushiik, Thank You for your invaluable support and for being an integral part of Atlohsa Gifts. Together, let's remain dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of Indigenous peoples.

Warm regards,

The Atlohsa Family Healing Services Director Circle
