To create opportunities for Indigenous peoples of Canada and the Americas to bridge the gap between local artisans and global markets and to contribute to their economic sustainability, while honoring cultural traditions and empowering one artisan at a time.
We envision a world without economic injustice, committed to upholding the dignity of Indigenous artisans by celebrating their traditional artistry as a step toward economic and social independence.
