It’s been a big week here in Calgary immersed in my research into this place and the stories of the peoples here who signed Treaty 7 in 1877 close to 150 years ago. The days have found me walking, gathering, contemplating on lands that resonate with memories of the thunder of Buffalo and the drums of the Blood Tribe, Peigan, Sisika, Stoney Nakoda and Tsuu T’ina Nations.
Last week our open library evening at Studio M*’s live-in library in Bridgeland brought forward a discussion of Métis ancestry with two guests one in person one on zoom. I’m looking forward to what this Friday will bring. If you are interested in joining on zoom contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the link.
Sunday is the closing event for my Artist Residency at Studio M in Calgary where I’ll be performing stories, showing the art pieces I’ve been creating, and my photography.
