3D Cree Bundle

Pledge: C$140.00
By Lorisia MacLeod(James Smith Cree Nation) of 3DBeadBee Description: This is a 3D designed set of Cree syllabics(Y-dialect) that is perfect for beginners to work on learning the star chart, basic sounds, or short words. I 3D designed these files As part of my own Cree learning and made the files freely available to help learners connect And have fun with their language. I print and sell study sets like these at cost for those who don’t have access to printers. This set of syllabics was printed in a rainbow PLA filament which gives each of the syllabics a different colour on each side- in this set the colours range from honey yellow to red. The syllabics range in size from 1cm(the finals) to 10cm(cardinal direction syllabics) so they are best used by adult learners or younger learners with supervision. Paired with this set are two pairs of 3D printed earrings that say tânsi in syllabics- commonly used for hello in Cree- so you can bring a little Cree with you wherever you go. These are about the size of a loonie but are almost weightless because they are 3D printed making them perfect for any age or ear sensitivity.

By Lorisia MacLeod (James Smith Cree Nation) of 3DBeadBee This is a 3D designed set of Cree syllabics (Y-dialect) that is perfect for beginners to work on learning the star chart, basic sounds, or short words. I 3D designed these files As part of my own Cree learning and made the files freely available to help learners connect And have fun with their language. I print and sell study sets like these at cost for those who don’t have access to printers. This set of syllabics was printed in a rainbow PLA filament which gives each of the syllabics a different colour on each side- in this set the colours range from silvery pale purple to royal purple. The syllabics range in size from 1cm(the finals) to 10cm (cardinal direction syllabics) so they are best used by adult learners or younger learners with supervision. Paired with this set is a pair of purple beaded flower earrings- measuring about 5cm long including the hook, they are a cute but elegant set of earrings for any age.

It was used to everything from papering canoes, baskets, medicine and artwork. Birch is symbolic of beginnings, renewals and starting over. I was born in the Northwest Territories, Yellowknife. My earliest memories are of birch, pine and spruce trees. My mother always took us to the cabin north of Yellowknife. I remember never straying far from my mother in fear of being lost in the dark, quiet woods. Now I miss the quiet, the creaks and the never-ending forest. My birch tree collection is inspired by my time in the north, the color teal and by my photo travels throughout Canada. The photos are incorporated in by color, the idea of or the feeling of my photos. The color teal means calmness, uniqueness and creative expressions.

Campaign Description

As part of National Indigenous Persons Day, ATB is proud to host our very own Alberta Indigenous Artist Market as a way to celebrate provincial indigenous artisans and entrepreneurs. This initiative is designed to give a platform to these creatives to sell their products and in doing so gain access to much-needed capital during this challenging time. The message “Shop Local” has never been louder and more needed, and we are excited to say that we’ll match 50% of every purchase up to $1000 and donate it to Indspire to support an Albertan Indigenous student. To browse the details of each item, scroll through our rewards section. Enlarged photos of each item are available in the slideshow section at the top of the page.

Our Story

Over the years ATB has been a strong supporter and advocate for the indigenous community and would traditionally be supporting National Indigenous People’s Day with a variety of events in our branches and corporate offices. Given the current health and safety restrictions, these events and many like them throughout the province are unable to happen.

Alberta Indigenous Artist Market was born out of the desire to still celebrate the creative skills and entrepreneurship demonstrated within the Albertan indigenous community, through the creation of a digital marketplace.

This marketplace is an opportunity for businesses to gain access to much-needed capital during these challenging times, with all money raised going directly to the producer. As well as the platform, ATB will be further supporting by matching 50% of every purchase up to $1000 and donating it to Indspire.

Indspire is an organization that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people for the long term benefit of these individuals, their families, and communities.

We encourage you to browse, appreciate, and purchase, knowing that your money is supporting local producers and a cause close to our heart.

Roots: Gwichin, Yellowknife, NWT
Now calls home: Spruce Grove

I was born in the Northwest Territories, Yellowknife. My earliest memories are of birch, pine and spruce trees. My mother always took us to the cabin north of Yellowknife.  I remember never straying far from my mother in fear of being lost in the dark, quiet woods. Now I miss the quiet, the creaks and the never-ending forest.

My birch tree collection is inspired by my time in the north, the color teal and by my photo travels throughout Canada. The photos are incorporated in by color, the idea of or the feeling of my photos. The color teal means calmness, uniqueness and creative expressions.

Roots: Edmonton
Now calls home: Edmonton

Artist statement:
I got the idea for this project from the The RedDress Photography Project which raises awareness to the high number of missing or murdered Indigenous women. My Forgotten Moccasin photo builds on the idea of the missing women, but focuses on the children who are negatively affected. When the women suffer in a community the whole future of the community suffers. Also anyone who has a photo they want to submit for this project can if they want to.

Each different technique I learned from different knowledge keepers along my journey. Each beaded necklace and earrings are handcrafted using different design and is consistently changing through the many different types of beads used. I started to incorporate higher quality beads and precious stones in all my hand crafted pieces. These include antique steel beads from est. 1880’s-1920’s, vintage steel sequins from est. 1920-1930’s, other vintage beads and 24k plated gold beads.

Indigenous Artist Market Collective I.A.M.

Indigenous Artist Market Collective I.A.M.

The Indigenous Artist Market Collective Collective is supported by an EndPoverty Edmonton initiative. This is an ad hoc committee that aims to develop an Indigenous Artist Market Co-operative. In 2016, City Council approved the road map or community action plan to end poverty. Goal #1: Toward True Reconciliation; Action #2: Create spaces, events and opportunities to show and grow the talents of Indigenous Edmontonian’s. The purpose of IAM Collective is to ensure local Indigenous artists and artisans have access to the market. It is to increase awareness of Indigenous authentic and contemporary art forms. It is to provide a local context of Indigenous art in Edmonton and to increase the market opportunities for artists. Currently there is little to no Indigenous artist/artisan owned or operated venues in Edmonton where Indigenous people can currently sell their wares and showcase their artistic talents. Since our Grand opening at the Edmonton Downtown farmer’s market in May of 2018 we have strived to bring the YEG community authentic, handcrafted indigenous art. Our artists have also taken from this opportunity the mentor ship of established artists, art supply swaps, business workshops, social media exposure, increased business and following, and so many other countless rewards. Most importantly we have created a circle of support, family, and knowledge for the artists, and the YEG community. As in many cultures the circle is in the roots of many indigenous teachings and spiritual beliefs. Ours circle has been made strong, and will get stronger by joining with other circles. Community circles, professional circles, festival circles, YEG circles, all coming together to make something bigger. Now nearly 50 members strong , we are eager to keep growing and improving what we have created together. Partnerships and support from community leaders such as ATB will help us break down barriers, and bridge the gaps to continue showcasing our art, our culture, and our people. "Our artists are a real mixed bag of nuts as we jokingly say, a mix of youth, established artists, seniors, those struggling with food and home security, some working on sobriety, students, single parents, but all equal in our circle. I am proud to stand with them, to work and grow with them, and look forward to introducing them to our Edmonton community, and eventually the world." Lorrie Lawrence - I.A.M Artist/Event Coordinator & Indigenous Artisan "I see us like blades of sweet grass...blowing in the wind together ...yet alone....but when braided together, we are strong and fierce.... Full if good medicine and the teachings of the old ones…."
