Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has
been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order

in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of
Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in

Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband,

purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
