Local artist paints quilts to honour Six Nations
An Ontario artist presented three painted barn quilts to Six Nations as an emblem in remembrance of Canada’s residential schools and the problem of missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada.
The gift was presented to Six Nations Elected Council Chief Ava Hill and Six Nations Tourism Manager Connie Jamieson during Community Awareness Week.
Elected Chief Hill said she felt reassured that the work being done to raise awareness to these issues is making an impact and encouraging people to get educated about indigenous issues.
The art will be on display at the Woodland Cultural Centre’s First Nations Art 2016 opening this Friday.
