About Us

We are building a true marketplace dedicated to Indigenous Art and Crafts from Canada and a community of passionate enthusiasts of Indigenous culture.  
(This site was launched in November 2019)

Even though the focus of the marketplace is on Indigenous Arts, the site will broadly promote Indigenous culture, and potentially, include Indigenous consumables and music, making it a go-to Marketplace for “everything Indigenous”.

We are looking for early adopters and Indigenous organizations that would like to partner with us and collaborate on this project.
Get in touch!

What we are trying to achieve:

  • Trusted marketplace for Authentic Indigenous products that supports fair trade.
  • Partner with Indigenous charities and art organizations that would help us with authentication of people and products, as well as help us co-ordinate things on the ground. 
  • Sell to global audience.
  • Give back to Indigenous Community. We plan to give a portion of the marketplace proceeds to partner organizations to support their activities to advance indigenous culture in different parts of the world.
