Pili Kinsuhsok - Gongigeminaegjij - Young Ancestors - Jeunes ancêtres
This exhibition presents artworks created by First Nations youth during the outreach programs organized in 2013 in four First Nations communities in the province. Gallery staff, community advisors, Elders and artists from Negotkuk, Pilick, Sitansisk, and Elsipogtog collaborated to develop and deliver engaging programs focusing on traditional language, art, storytelling and culture. This project will continue over the next four years, and will eventually include all First Nations communities in the province. These programs are made possible by the passion and dedication of Imelda Perley, Shane Perley -Dutcher, Natalie Sappier, Tara Francis, Cyril Sacobie, Richard Dick, Sandra Racine, Julie Ann Paul and the youth they teach and inspire. We are grateful to UNB-MMI and the NBCCD for their continued commitment to the success of this project.
