Indigenous artist designs showroom at IKEA store

At IKEA Calgary, an indigenous artist was invited to design a showroom. Lana Manyfingers drew on her Blackfoot and Cree roots to create a space that reflects her own culture and family history. “It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase my ancestry, my family, my culture, and my love for Mohkinstsis—the city of Calgary.”

Items in the showroom include a coffee table with a medicine wheel pattern, traditional medicines and herbs, and a ribbon skirt dress designed by Lowa McNabb from Standing Buffalo (shown left, with Manyfingers).
