Indigenous Artist Series

The National Lacrosse League has long been a leader in championing the awareness of Indigenous Peoples and their crucial role in the continued growth and development of their native sport of lacrosse. In that continued spirit and in conjunction with June’s Indigenous History Month in Canada, the league announced the launch of a pop artist initiative featuring three standout Indigenous pop artists.

Tewanee Joseph, member of the Squamish First Nation and CEO of Tewanee Consulting Group, hosted interviews with the artists and coordinated communications efforts surrounding the program. In one of his many accomplishments delivering key partnerships, Joseph negotiated the first licensing agreement to recognize Indigenous artwork as part of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic games in Vancouver.

 

Artists include Yul Baker, Tracey Anthony, and Jordan Thompson
