Name of creator
The Alberta Indian Arts and Crafts Society organized in 1975. The society offered individual membership to Alberta residents 16 years of age and older, and those who held Indian status according to the Indian Act of 1962. A board of directors consisting of one representative from each of the Kainai/Piikani District, the Siksika/Nakoda/ Tsuu T’ina District, Edmonton/Maskwacis District, the Saddle Lake/Athabasca District, the Lesser Slave Lake District, and the Fort Vermillion District governed the society. The society also maintained an executive committee consisting of a president, vice president, and secretary-treasurer. The society sought to encourage, distribute, promote, authenticate, and develop Indigenous peoples arts and crafts programs in Alberta. The President of the society represented the society in the National Indian Arts and Crafts Corporation based in Ottawa. In pursuit of their objectives, the society offered trade shows, exhibitions, programs, trainings, and employment opportunities for members and community members from each district. The society dissolved in 1991.
