The Barka Arts back story to these dolls:
“I myself, as well as many Indigenous people have fair skin. My family are mixed dark and light.
To me these dolls represent Identity!

I wanted more children to be able to connect and relate to the dolls. Dolls that represent different shades and meanings of our First Nations People.”
