The Lyons Sisters

Tansi! We're the Lyons Sisters - Metis Jiggers. We are Swampy-Cree Metis from northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan and proud citizens of the Metis Nation of Ontario. We’ve been learning traditional dance for most of our lives so our style reflects everything we’ve learned from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. 

Meet the Makers:

Annika and Sierra Conboy

I am a young urban Inuk beader who loves to make earrings, pop-sockets, necklaces, etc. I have a small beading business with my younger sister “Bannock Bum Beading.”

We recommend arriving by foot or public transit, but if driving there is free street parking available on Wellington and nearby side streets with a time limit.

The market will be setup right next door to our shop on Wellington, in the parking lot of Little Mac's.

We recognize that Indigenous peoples are not a monolith and there are many different First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities across this land. This event seeks to celebrate a diversity of artists and cultures who identify as being part of these Indigenous communities. We have done our best to ensure authenticity, while respecting the fact that not every person who is Indigenous has the same background (Eg. Status vs. non-status; On reserve vs. In the city). In the words of an artist: "we hope to work together towards decolonization & making these lands be all they can be."
