Today in Canada we celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day. Falling on summer solstice each year, it’s an important day to recognize. In honour of this day, I’ve collected a few of my favourite and authentic Indigenous artists/businesses to share on the blog to add to another post I did a while back which you can find here. Check them out below.

8. WSS (Warren Steven Scott) Harvest Dress with one-of-a-kind Black Ash pack basket handcrafted by Mohawk maker Glen Swamp of Akwesasne, featuring adjustable straps with a berry and floral beaded design by Niio Perkins.
