SARAIN FOX's Treadright Impact

Sarain’s involvement with TreadRight emerged from her work helping to preserve Indigenous culture and stories through the Manitobah Mukluks Storyboot School — The TreadRight Foundation’s first project in North America. The school, located in Toronto Canada, teaches the traditional art of mukluk and moccasin-making in an effort to keep traditions alive and inspire the next generation of Indigenous artists.

All of Sarain’s work is rooted in her passion to represent and lift up Indigenous people and her commitment to climate justice, which includes her position as a board member for the Center for Biological Diversity.

Travel is an essential component of Sarain’s activism and storytelling. Through TreadRight, she is empowering people to recognize the impact they have as they travel and to make that impact a positive one. Sarain believes that everything we do in our lives should contribute to positive change.
