We collaborate with Indigenous Artists and elders to produce authentic books, cards and journals to tell the other side of the story of Indigenous people — of hope and of a different future. Colouring It Forward is more than a colouring book, it’s a gathering place for people to share their own stories and their Native Canadian art, and to build a community. We are a 100% Indigenous social enterprise and make donations from our sales to Indigenous social projects.
