Missing Witches Ostara Special – Talking Spiritual Bypassing with The Birch Trail

PHOTOS BY julienlauzonphotography.com

Music: The song Michelle is singing is called “Honour Song” by George Paul. The lyrics in English translate to: “Let us greatly respect our being L’nu (Mi’kmaq/native). My people let us gather. Let us greatly respect our native roots. My people let us help one another. Let us help one another as Creator intended when he put us on the earth”

The Birch Trail is inspired and deeply rooted in Michelle’s relation to Turtle Island and her mixed Indigenous roots. Using the same mediums her ancestors have been using for thousands of years, Michelle has been transforming nature with resin into classic jewelry designs for over the past 6 years.

Michelle Beausejour is a mixed Indigenous artist from Tkaronto and currently residing in Tiohtià:ke. Entrepreneur & community organizer, Michelle currently makes jewelry as The Birch Trail and organizes maker markets as Collectif Creatif EtsyMtl.
