Digital marketplace Biskane aimed at Indigenous makers to sell their products
A new digital platform is showcasing authentic First Nation art, with an eye on promoting creative works by Indigenous creators.
Biskane — loosely translated from the Ojibway for “igniting a fire” — is an initiative by artists Chad Solomon and Will Morin.
On the site, shoppers can browse through listings for traditional art, graphic novels, food, even source out Indigenous storytellers and guides for traditional workshops.
The energy driving Biskane, Morin said, is centred around bringing a community-focussed approach to selling art, and a “one-stop shop” for Indigenous work, while ensuring that communities benefit from the sales of their cultural efforts.
