Established in 2007, INDIGO, the international Indigenous design network, is a culturally inclusive network of designers and design stakeholders. INDIGO acts as a meeting place to share knowledge and discuss methods pertaining to the ethical and appropriate representation of Indigenous culture in communication design practice. It is an open, global platform that connects both Indigenous and non-Indigenous designers worldwide to respectfully share knowledge and explore the contemporary interpretation of traditional design. INDIGO facilitates discussion and  initiates collaborative projects, exhibitions and conferences, it also showcases other relevant initiatives and case studies from around the world. INDIGO respects and actively responds to the United Nations declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples: “Indigenous peoples have the right to practice and revitalise their cultural traditions and customs. This includes the right to maintain, protect and develop the past, present and future manifestations of their cultures (incl. Designs)”.
