Margaret is a well-known community member and an entrepreneur in First Nations art and crafts. She's been selling since 1972. Initially, she started collecting items from remote communities on the Manitoba border that could be only accessed through bush planes. Eventually, she collected a lot of items that she couldn't move in her apartment and had to open a crafts store.
Last weekend I took my son Lucas to the Indigenous artisan marketplace and a holiday craft show that was held at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto (NCCT) at 16 Spadina Road.It's an annual event that NCCT holds at their center around Christmas time to promote local Indigenous artists.
