From the Anishinaabe Nation, Martha Troian is from the traditional territories of Obishikokaang (Lac Seul) First Nation in Northwestern Ontario, and also has ties to Wabauskang First Nation. 

Martha harvests wiigwaas (birch bark) as her ancestors did, offering a prayer along with semaa (tobacco) back to the land. Most wiigwaas is collected from Treaty 1 and 3 territories.  

Her collection, known as Pinotinoway (The Coming Wind), includes everything from wiigwaas earrings, bracelets, necklaces, cufflinks, to barrettes made with genuine sterling silver and other jewelry findings. Each of these modern and minimalist wearables are one-of-a-kind.

Pinotinoway also offers leather goods, hats, stationary and gifts, all designed by Martha herself or select artisans.
