Angel and Alex are a 2S BIPOC couple and co-founders of Indi City. In 2017 they incorporated wearable technology into traditional regalia for a woman’s traditional outfit called The Matriarch Speaks, exhibited in Calgary, Ottawa, and Shenzhen, China. They both graduated from the Indigenous Women in Community Leadership Program at St. FX University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, that same year. Together they design and create fashion accessories for the current indigenization of Turtle Island in contact with their ancestral roots. With an in-house multi-media production company, they work to curate a 100% Indigenous-made brand through visual marketing and storytelling.
