Turtle Island is a shared, indigenous story of creation. Once, before time and when the world was water, our universe existed on the back of a turtle. Indigenous people call this Turtle Island.
Nearby, what is colonially known as “Drake Park” was the gathering place and trading post of native tribes from and beyond this region—it was a space of homage to everyone, a place to share, witness, and support one another. A place to grow, celebrate, create, fall in love, exchange and more.
Turtle Island Coffee honors and continues this ancestral example—it is the only indigenous, queer, and two-spirit owned space that intentionally centers indigenous, brown, and black, queer, trans and non-binary people in all its endeavors.
From our indigenous, two-spirited coffee roaster to our black trans muralist, Turtle Island Coffee seeks to feature, uplift, and honor indigenous, brown, black, queer, and trans makers, artists, and creatives.
