Handcrafted by an Indigenous Artisan from the Timmins James Bay area.
Niska is the Cree word meaning goose; the life-giver to hunters in Northern First Nations.
Niska Artisans is a project of Mennonite Central Committee’s Indigenous Neighbours Program that took flight in 2007 and supports the work of more than 25 Indigenous artisans in First Nations and communities stretching across Northeastern Ontario.
In addition to recognizing the work of gifted artisans, this fair-trade program seeks to educate patrons about the unique cultures in Ontario’s Far North.
