The Directors Alexis & Huntiri Hessen have been involved in Indigenous art since 1988.

Huntiri worked with Indigenous art centres and communities in his role as a technician installing satellite phones HF and VHF radio equipment in the mid 90’s.

Working with the elders of these communities he developed a deep love for the culture and traditions of the First Nations People.

Alexis and Huntiri passionately continue to support Indigenous communities with a goal of raising awareness through fundraising and charity events to improve living standards and building independence and a renewed pride in culture and Indigenous Art.
