TRIBAL AFFILIATION: ANISHINAABE
Destiny Seymour is an Anishinaabe interior designer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. After graduating with her Masters in Interior Design from the University of Manitoba, Destiny worked at an architecture firm in Winnipeg for over 10 years before starting her own design business in 2016. Destiny started designing artisan textiles for interiors that respectfully reflects local Manitoban Indigenous peoples and their history after struggling to find materials that she could incorporate into design projects. Her company, Indigo Arrows, now offers a range of table linens, pillows, and blankets that showcase patterns from local Indigenous pottery and bone tools that date from 400 to over 3000 years old. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples in Manitoba created beautiful patterns to adorn their pottery and host of bone tools. Most of these surviving pieces are held in museums now. Using a variety of materials & mediums, Destiny is reviving these ancient patterns to provoke thought, bridge gaps, and inspire loved ones.
