As you colour one of Colouring It Forward’s books or read the calendar, you will get a chance to discover authentic Indigenous artwork, read stories and legends passed down for millennia and learn more about our wonderful Indigenous peoples’ spirituality and values. You will also be supporting artists and elders who receive royalties from sales as well as donating to Indigenous projects led by Indigenous people. We invite you to join our community and share your experience. Together we can continue learning about each other and appreciating and supporting each other. This is an important step towards reconciliation.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/Saulteaux/Anishinaabe. We also acknowledge all of the Indigenous, Inuit and Métis peoples who make Alberta their home today.
