DESCRIPTION

Native Arts and Culture students from Sir John A Macdonald Secondary School explore Aboriginal teachings and worldviews through symbols, stories, colours and cadence in Songide'ewin: Aboriginal Narratives. This exhibition combines visual and literary art as a means to foster dialogue that leads toward truth and reconciliation between Native and non-Native communities. Individual and collective learning is presented in the paintings and in the literary responses to them. Through the creative process, truth evolves and emerges. This exhibition was created by Rene Meshake, Ojibwe artist and author, and Dr. Kristiina Montero, Faculty of Education, Wilfrid Laurier University.
