For the latest episode of the Strange Process podcast, David Premi sits down with Angela DeMontigny, an internationally renowned Indigenous clothing and accessory designer, and entrepreneur.
Angela’s work is helping to bring Indigenous art to the forefront while paving the way for young Indigenous designers and artists across the country.
