About ‘All My Relations’

‘All My Relations’ is a mosaic portrait to honour the Indigenous Nations, each with their own unique culture, from their music and food to their songs and language. Originally an acrylic piece on a 7’3” x 7’3” canvas, the mosaic portrait has evolved as a digital illustration. Incorporating an incredible use of beautiful colours to represent the diversity and vibrancy of all Nations across Turtle Island. 

Speaking to the diversity among Indigenous peoples, Steven’s message amplifies the celebration of culture at the root of Indigenous entrepreneurship and business while recognizing the unique challenges most face. 

“Being an Indigenous entrepreneur, we may face unique challenges related to access to resources and market opportunities,” shared Steven. “However, I have noticed in my own journey the overwhelming support Indian Country gives to Native-run business and I’m excited to see so many draw from their cultural heritage, traditional knowledge, and community values in their business endeavors.”
