  • Published on: Jun 21, 2023

Today, we commemorate National Indigenous Peoples Day, a day dedicated to honoring the rich cultures, languages, and traditions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. As interior designers and individuals practicing in the interior design field, we recognize the significance of this day and its impact on promoting understanding, respect, and reconciliation. 

National Indigenous Peoples Day allows us to:

✨ Celebrate Heritage: It's a time to appreciate and celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of Indigenous communities, from their unique art forms to their deep spiritual connections with the land. We embrace this richness and strive to incorporate Indigenous perspectives into our designs.

✨ Amplify Indigenous Voices: This day provides an opportunity to amplify Indigenous voices, uplift Indigenous designers, and acknowledge their contributions to the design industry. We recognize the importance of collaborative partnerships and support Indigenous-led initiatives.

✨ Promote Inclusive Design: National Indigenous Peoples Day reminds us of the importance of designing with cultural sensitivity, respect, and inclusivity. By incorporating Indigenous knowledge, symbols, and materials, we create spaces that reflect and honor Indigenous identity and heritage.

✨ Foster Reconciliation: We embrace this day as a step towards reconciliation, working towards healing the wounds of the past and building meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities. We believe that design can be a tool for understanding, respect, and positive change.

On this National Indigenous Peoples Day, let's come together to celebrate, learn, and take meaningful action. By recognizing and valuing the rich tapestry of Indigenous cultures, we contribute to a more inclusive and equitable future.
