National Indigenous Peoples Day at the Gallery
21 june, 2018

Join us in celebrating with a free performance by Pokuhulakon Witsehkehsu - Sisters of the Drum, followed by a presentation on the Grandfather Akwiten Canoe with Kim and Wayne Brooks. Event is free and open to all.

The Drum Group is made up of women that have committed their hearts and voices to share the beautiful songs of the Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people since the spring of 2016. They also work closely with elders to learn the language and to learn traditional Wolastoqiyik songs.

Kim and Wayne Brooks are artists and canoe makers from Sitansisk (St. Mary’s First Nation). For over twenty years , together with their now grown children, Cody, Patrick and Desmond, Kim and Wayne have been working tirelessly on the recovery of the Wolastoqewiyik tradition of creating birch bark canoes and teaching the importance of this craft and its legacy. To them, Grandfather Akwiten is much more than a canoe, it is a sacred object and a teaching tool, a connection to the river and the past, and a way to “bring back ancient teachings to our people” and hope for the future.
