About Our Logo
In the Indigenous Mathematicians logo, the water droplet at the center represents the importance of water and the vitality of its nourishment. It can also be seen simultaneously as a seedling, with vines that caress that droplet, representing the nurturing of individuals who seek knowledge and those who will help them grow.
Those sprouting vines swirl into an infinity sign towards the top, acknowledging the everlasting necessary cycle of learning and educating from generation to the next.
Circled around the droplet seedling is a weaving pattern representing our native and indigenous people and how our working together makes us stronger.
We used a pattern of 3’s to represent good energy from the mind, body, & spirit and a pattern of 4’s to represent the 4 corners (4 directions) in the individual strands of the weaving.
Lastly the colors chosen for the background are black, red, and yellow as they are commonly used to represent much of our unique indigenous cultural aspects of our lives and histories around the world, thus connecting us with our similarities as well.
As artists of Canoe Culture Connections, we strive to help heal our communities
of historical traumas and to strengthen ourselves as a people by making new connections with others, all while passing down the knowledge that has been passed to us.
