Niska Artisans Gallery

Housed by the Mennonite Central Committee Ontario’s Northern Regional office, the Niska artisans program took flight in 2007, and today supports the work of more than 30 indigenous artisans across North East Ontario. In addition to supplementing the incomes of artisans, this fair-trade program seeks to both educate patrons about the unique cultures in Ontario’s far North and to preserve a way of life.

“The Artisans strive to keep their culture and traditions alive through their hand-made products and teaching from their ancestors and elders.”

Helen Kataquapit, Aboriginal Artisans Assistant.
