First Nations Summit

The First Nations Summit is a First Nations organization in British Columbia founded in 1992 after the formation of the British Columbia Treaty Commission and the British Columbia Treaty Process. It represents the interests of First Nation band governments involved in the treaty process. Since 2004 TORA! has designed and produced annual desk calendars for the organization. Cover designs initially highlighted significant events in the Treaty process but have evolved to spotlight the works of First Nations artists. The 2011 cover shows details of a totem carved by First Nations instructors and student artists at the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art, a division of Northwest Community College in Terrace, BC.
