Starting Sunday March 15th until Saturday March 21st, 2015 at the Glen P. Sutherland Gallery of Art.

Nishtawinnakayen>, a Michif word, conveys the spiritual nature of recognition infused through Métis culture. Nishtawinnakayen is all encompassing and recognizes life, identities, and people. Cameron’s thesis is about Métis identity and showing how he and Métis culture connect. His thesis is also about grounding. The effort and the grounding that he feels within Métis culture are the ideas that are investigated within this body of work. Cameron uses Métis literature and Michif (Métis language) to tell this story.

An opening reception will be held Thursday March 19th from 7PM - 10PM
