Nearly half of WAG-Qaumajuq’s permanent collection is composed of work by Indigenous artists.

The vast majority of WAG-Qaumajuq’s Indigenous collection—just over 12,000 objects—are carvings, drawings, prints, and textile work by Inuit artists such as Kiugak Ashoona, Oviloo Tunnillie, and Abraham Anghik Ruben. Located on Treaty No. 1 Territory, the homeland of the Anishinaabe, Ininiwak, Anishininiwak, Dakota, Dene, and Métis peoples, WAG-Qaumajuq is focusing a growing collection of work by First Nations and Metis artists with strong ties to Manitoba, including Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig, and Robert Houle. There is also increasing representation of younger generations of contemporary Indigenous artists from across Canada and beyond, such as Kent Monkman, K. C. Adams, Meryl McMaster, Ursula Johnson, Joi T. Arcand, and Jonathan Jones.
