Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Anishinaabe interior designer Destiny Seymour debuted her studio and shop, Indigo Arrows, back in 2016. She specializes in developing Indigenous spaces informed by a community’s specific history and future needs. Destiny’s linens, bedding, and made-to-order drum stools feature striking patterns and prints.
In 2017, Pueblo/Ute/Genízara creative Maida Branch established a collective of Indigenous and Indo-Hispanic artists. Dubbed Maida Goods, the platform is “an ever-evolving expression of ancestry, homecoming, diaspora forced and chosen, memory learned and lost, reclamation, and preservation,” as she puts it. Maida and her partner, Johnny Ortiz-Concha—who together raise criollo cattle and churro sheep on their New Mexico farm—share the stories of the creators behind the incredible art, pottery, and textiles on offer.
