Established in 1993, Native Women in the Arts is a not-for-profit organization for First Nations, Inuit and Metis women from diverse artistic disciplines who share a common interest in culture, art, community and the advancement of Indigenous peoples.

Founded in 1993 by Sandra Laronde, Native Women in the Arts has fostered the artistic careers of hundreds of women and female youth. NWIA produces unique artistic programming while developing, supporting, and cultivating Aboriginal women in the performing arts, literary arts and publishing, visual arts, and community development projects.

Native Women in the Arts' influence has been felt in Indigenous, culturally diverse and mainstream communities across Canada. We nourish and transform our community by pursuing the highest standards of artistic excellence; by presenting high quality artists; and by offering exceptional development opportunities to emerging artists.
