Each individual piece is an original hand crafted award by Aboriginal Indians to be displayed by its recipients with pride. This award was made possible through partnership with Canadian Arctic Producers, a wholesale art marketing arm of Arctic Co-operatives Limited, a co-operative service organization owned and controlled by the 31 community-based, multi-purpose co-operatives in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Arctic Co-operatives Limited is dedicated to providing services and business development opportunities to communities throughout Canada's north. With the development of the art-producing co-operatives, Canadian Arctic Producers originated in 1965 and continues to work proudly and exclusively with Inuit and Dene artists to promote the finest selection of their art and distinctive culture around the world.
Being a co-operative organization, the benefits derived from the sale of these fine art pieces are returned to the individual member-owners of the co-operatives and to the artists who create the unique stories of this historic frontier.
