Native Northwest Reconciliation Award

Native Northwest is pleased to support Indigenous students at Yukon University with a $500 award.


Native Northwest is committed to building everyday connection to Indigenous cultures through authentic art. The company's lifelong relationship with each artist (whose art is featured on Native Northwest's products) is built on a foundation of respect and authenticity, ensuring that each artist is honoured and able to tell the stories of their communities and cultures through their distinct designs.
