Indigenous people have been systemically oppressed and under-represented for centuries.
Mitch (the owner) would occasionally attend peaceful rallies and awareness gatherings that brought important Indigenous issues into the spotlight. One day Mitch decided to create his own shirt, equipped with a powerful message that read "F*CK Colonialism".
Several people at a gathering approached him and asked where he got the shirt so they could purchase one. This sparked the entrepreneurial spirit in Mitch, so he did some googling.
After noticing that Indigenous representation in the casual wear/streetwear fashion was undersaturated, Mitch decided to take a risk and create a clothing brand that imagines streetwear fashion through an urban Indigenous lens.
We started as 'Our Feather Clothing Company' (2020) to test the waters and eventually changed to 'Resist Clothing Company' in Sept 2021 when we better understood our brand. Today we continue to 'Indigenize' streetwear, and build a quality driven brand that is worn globally.
ABOUT THE OWNER
Mitch Gegwetch (The company owner) is an Indigenous Entrepreneur and non-profit leader. Anishinaabe and a registered member of Sagamok First Nation. A community located in Northern Ontario Canada.
Mitch grew up in the city of Toronto but has strong family roots in his community of Sagamok, returning each summer to spend time with family, friends and attend the annual powwow. All native people are born unique; we come in different shapes, sizes and skin tones. Mitch understands the privilege that comes with being a fair/light skinned native (or as some call "white passing"). His grandparents are survivors of the residential school era, if not for their resilience, he would not be here today.
