Stoney Nakoda Exhibit

May 6 at 6-9pm
La Cite Francophone

An exhibition containing diverse works from members of the Stoney Nakoda Audio Visual Club, which is based in Treaty 7 Territory, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain Range. A youth driven collective, our group’s rallying call is that we believe in the power of story and the potential of our people. These works reflect traditional as well as modern influences on each artist’s life, and speak to the importance of creation as a process of countering the negative forces that act upon us as young indigenous people living on reserves.

Artists featured:
• Cheyanne Bearspaw
• Jarret Twoyoungman
• Willard Lefthand
• Loretta Blackbuffalo
• Soloman Chiniquay

This exhibit runs until July 6 and is in conjunction with the Rubaboo Indigenous Art Festival.

It’s free.
