Biskane, an Indigenous version of Etsy, developed to help Indigenous artists and entrepreneurs
A new online shopping platform wants to connect shoppers with authentic Indigenous art and experiences designed by creators all across North America.
Biskane — which is the Anishinaabe word used to describe the act of lighting a fire — has been developed by three Ontario creators who were inspired to bring exposure to other Indigenous artists and entrepreneurs.
Founder and CEO Chad Solomon is a member of the Aanishinaabe community of Henvey Inlet First Nation, Ont. He’s an author, storyteller, puppeteer and graphic novelist. He’s also the grandson of the late Art Solomon, an Ojibwe Elder and social justice activist.
