Indigenous, particularly, Inuit activists have advocated for a more inclusive understanding of sustainability, one that incorporates Indigenous environmental management and practices.
The Canadian sealskin industry has grown into an expansive business connected to fashion and design. Purchasing sealskin that is certified by the Government of Nunavut ensures that designers and seamstresses are working with skin that was hunted by Inuit hunters. This recognition is crucial to sustaining the Inuit seal industry. It also ensures a transparent and traceable supply chain.
Lineage Arts take pride in supporting Canadian Indigenous hunters. We only purchase sealskin that is certified or directly from Indigenous hunters themselves.
