Economic Reconciliation: Fraser Valley Métis Association Celebrates Indigenous Art and Culture with Artisan Markets

The Fraser Valley Métis Association is excited to support and foster economic reconciliation through their First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Artisan Markets!

These markets are a vibrant celebration of Indigenous artistry and culture, providing a platform for talented artisans to showcase their work.

Indigenous communities have a rich history of creativity and resilience, but colonization and assimilation have left lasting scars. Now, initiatives like the Artisan Markets aim to revive and celebrate Indigenous traditions, supporting economic reconciliation in the process.

In Canada, reconciliation means acknowledging past wrongs and building meaningful relationships based on respect and partnership. Economic reconciliation, a vital part of this journey, seeks to address economic disparities faced by Indigenous peoples. The Artisan Markets contribute to this by empowering Indigenous artisans and promoting sustainable prosperity.

Join us in celebrating Indigenous art and culture at the Artisan Markets, where creativity meets community and reconciliation takes ROOT.

Together, we can build a brighter future that honors and uplifts Indigenous voices.
