Indigenous Awareness Week is a time to learn about and honour the Indigenous history of our land. The Artisan Market at Southcentre Mall invites you to come join in celebrating Indigenous culture while supporting local businesses. The artisan market will showcase 9 unique Indigenous vendors, in partnership with Authentically Indigenous. Authentically Indigenous is a local, grassroots market that was created to support Indigenous creativity, businesses, and arts and culture. Vendors are Indigenous artists, creators, and makers from the Calgary and Treaty Areas 6, 7, and 8. Authentically Indigenous curated its first marketplace in 2015.

This special two-day event at Southcentre Mall will begin with an opening ceremony on Thursday, June 23, 2022, which will include an opening prayer, a blessing from elder Dian EagleSpeaker, and a traditional dance performance.
