In the small town of Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, entrepreneur Brenda Dragon, a Dënesųłiné-French-Métis, founded Aurora Heat, a natural fur warmer made from beaver pelt. For Dragon, the creation of Aurora Heat was to honour her father, their families trapping lifestyle and to replace the artificial, less sustainable forms of warmth made from non-renewable sources. Her small business offers her the ability to change perceptions around fur and to move to a more sustainable, natural solution that will help protect the planet.
