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.

The IACC is a Canada not-for-profit corporation. We are artists FOR artists. We are a volunteer organization.

(Formerly the Aboriginal Arts Collective of Canada | Student Programming formerly named Pass the Feather)
