Call Out for Contributions: Memorial Gallery

tânisi, Greetings to all. This is a call out for all who are inspired to contribute to our Online Memorial Gallery.  We are creating this Memorial Gallery to acknowledge the pain, grief, outrage, shame and blame currently being resurfaced with the recent horrific news of the children found buried at what once was the site of the Kamloops Residential School. Simultaneously we wish to honor the trauma and the strength of Survivors and Descendants and bring much needed attention the ongoing Legacy of the Indian Residential School Era, to make visible the continuing ripple effects into our shared worlds today, and to commit to ongoing reconcileActions to do our part to bring awareness to and make change in all of our circles of influence.  To encourage the launch of the Memorial Gallery,  Dr. Fyre Jean Graveline, Lead of Indigenized Healing Arts Programming at WHEAT Institute, wishes to offer this Response Art, an Eco-Art Image, created with Food Paints, with an accompanying Poetic Inquiry. We encourage you to send in your heARTfelt contributions to
