Truth and Reconciliation Day: Miro Pimatisiwin – Wishing Ourselves a Good Life
Adults, children welcome/French and Atikammekw/Free/Registration required (spaces limited)
As part of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the McCord Stewart Museum, in collaboration with Marie-Claude Nequado, an Atikamekw multidisciplinary artist from Manawan, and the Centre de services de justice réparatrice, offer a creative and reflective encounter on the themes of disruptions in the transmission of identity, on the healing needed to build sensitive and respectful relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples, and on identity itself.
Explore Marie-Claude Nequado’s works and the symbolic readings of her compositions as an introduction to indigenous perspectives on healing. This foundation will serve as the starting point for the creation of a collaborative work of art, a testimony to a shared commitment to encountering one another and the desire to journey together.
Following the activity, participants may visit the McCord Museum’s exhibition Indigenous Voices of Today, free of charge.
