Indigenous Arts Collective of Canada

In taking inspiration from the Haudenosaunee Seventh Generation Principle, the Indigenous Arts Collective of Canada was founded in 2012 to preserve and revitalize endangered Indigenous art forms and enrich lives through Indigenous arts and culture. 

In using our knowledge from Ancestors and Elders, we are actively practicing and teaching in safe and inclusive spaces. The IACC engages, [re]connects and empowers Indigenous women by promoting the transfer and conservation of cultural knowledge; securing the capacity for the next generations to retain and cultivate intrinsic cultural connections.

We are artists FOR artists. We are a volunteer organization led by Indigenous women.

An annual gathering to honour of the survivors of Indian residential schools and Indian child apprehension programs.The IACC supports, loves and gently holds onto all Indigenous persons affected by child apprehension programs such as the Indian residential 'school' systems, the Sixties Scoop and present day efforts to change, erase, ignore, kill or conform Indigenous cultures of Turtle Island. We offer oien'kwa'ón:we (assemma, tobacco) and Atónnion (Eagle) medicines in memory of those who died and for the continued healing of survivors, their families and communities. May all hold close the teachings of the Ka'nikonhriióhtshera (Good Mind) and move forward in a way that promotes compassion, equality and inclusivity.

2022 is child and youth led with special guest speaker, Autumn Peltier • Water Advocate
