The Artists’ Connection 5: Indigenous Perspectives
September 2016-June 2019
Traveling throughout the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board and Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board, this art education exhibition offers schools a unique opportunity to bring Indigenous artists and their art into the classrooms in order to share their work and artistic practice with students. Beginning in September 2016, the exhibition will visit 9 schools per year for 3 years, with a possible extension.
This unique program of exhibition and artist appearances is designed to create a relationship between the Indigenous visual arts community and the public schools, interacting with children at a most meaningful time in their lives.

Ironically whenever I'm in a classroom I forget to mention a children's story book I wrote & illustrated almost 5 years ago. It's based on a dream I had as a child & includes Mohawk/Kanien’kehá:ka experiences & stories. It was also included on the "First Nations Community Reads" recommended reading list.
If you click on the cover you will be taken to Amazon.ca.
If you prefer, contact me and you can get the book for the same price as Amazon but I will inscribe it with a message for that special someone. You'll need to send me you name, address and inscription in an email (see my contact page) and I'll send you a PayPal link to make payment.
Shipping time depends on the post office so give yourself enough time if it's a gift.
That's it for now... Ó:nen ki' wáhi
