Artist Collective

Niska Artisans

Housed by Mennonite Central Committee’s Indigenous Neighbours program, Niska Artisans took flight in 2007 and supports Indigenous artisans in First Nations and communities stretching across northeastern Ontario by purchasing their work, hosting workshops and sales, as well as creating space for artisans to gather. “Niska” is Cree for goose; the life-giver for hunters in northern First Nations.

Niska products are fair trade and one-of-a-kind, made with traditional techniques, quality materials, and dedication.
