The incredible work of Indigenous artisans will be on display at our first-ever Indigenous Showcase produced in partnership with Indigenous Experiences, operators of Mādahòkì Farm and producers of the annual Summer Solstice Indigenous Festival. Authentic works will be available along with demos and take home craft kits. Mādahòkì (Share the Land) is a working farm and gathering place in Ottawa’s West end that plays host to seasonal festivals and events as well as corporate and school groups so visitors can learn about and experience authentic Indigenous culture. Signatures Shows is proud to host and help heighten awareness of diversity, equity and inclusion by showcasing the works of Indigenous artisans.
