Support Indigenous Artists
Authentically Indigenous Inc.
Authentically Indigenous Inc. was founded by two sisters, Melrene Saloy and Autumn EagleSpeaker, who wanted to make authentic Indigenous art more accessible to the public and to create a market that was more accessible to Indigenous artisans.
Authentically Indigenous Inc. supports local Indigenous creativity, arts, and culture by creating and curating markets, cultural events, opportunities, and services; craft workshops, land-based learning, and cultural knowledge workshops facilitated by local Elders and knowledge keepers.
Authentically Indigenous Inc. offers cultural event planning and cultural consultation connecting non-Indigenous businesses, organizations, and school groups with authentic Indigenous opportunities and experiences.
We have worked with the following companies connecting them with cultural opportunities: Amazon, Southcenter Mall, Atco, Enmax, Calgary Catholic School Board, and Calgary International Airport.
