We spent our first class creating our failbooks! Which are sketchbooks that we're allowed to fail in. Art is about trying and being okay with it not being 'perfect' because what does that even mean? #nwejinanarts #indigenousyouth #failbook @nwejinanarts

It's the view from the art room window here in Witset ๐ŸŽƒ I've been listening to Levar Burton Reads Podcast while I sketch recently so I'll let you know what story I listened to while sketching. This one was too Morning Child by Gardner Dozois. An after the end of the world story about two gentlemen who take a walk and about bonds that continue even if we hurt. #inktober2018 #birch #forest #ink #fallingleaves #illustration #indigenousart #nwejinanarts #artsconcentration #watercolour #watercolourpainting #tree #fall

Last Friday was the #terryfoxrun2018 day at the school. Jamie and I hosted a open art studio period were all students from the school we invited to create.  I wish that I had taken more pictures, but over 30 students came during that hour either to paint a small collective mural, work on their final projects or just free draw for the primary students.

Fun times though! It was a great way to connect with other members of the school and promote @mikwchiyam #artiniciative #nwejinanarts #mikwchiyam

Iskut, the best graffiti in the north. A school with an incredible view. Some of the nicest, most talented and passionate teachers and staff Iโ€™ve ever met. And most of all, a community of warriors that band together and stand up for their land no matter what. What an incredible place to visit, I know I say this every time, but I really didnโ€™t want to leave! Uncle Huey (pictured here) is one of the most humble, caring and multitalented artists that Iโ€™ve ever met. A man with an incredible story working day and night to share everything he can with the next generations. The school is covered in his and his students beautiful artwork AND he plays a mean guitar! Canโ€™t wait for @milanandremusic to work with this community of incredibly talented young people to make a school anthem. #nwejinan #nwejinanarts #iskut #tahltan #unclehuey #tahltanstrong #loveyou @nwejinanarts

We had the most wonderful community tour with @russellhaskell and Laura who took time out of their busy schedules to tour us around old Tachie, back yard smoke houses and hide tanning down by the Health Center. We even got to visit neighbouring Binche Nation on our way out where Russell has some unbelievable sign and door carvings.

Entered into cowboy country a couple days ago while visiting Tlโ€™etinqox Nation just west of Williams Lake, BC. A very different landscape from the coast, but equally as breathtaking. This landscape is one with some very recent devastation due to severe wildfires in 2017 that wiped out huge parts of the territory. The fires have impacted title rights to hunting and fishing, housing and left a veil of darkness over very strong communities who fought their hardest to protect their land, homes and families. It was such a privilege to get to meet the Chilcotin youth, teachers and band council alongside some familiar faces who have recently moved to join the school team. Thank you so much to Clayton and Colin for the warm welcome on our very quick but ever so fruitful visit. We canโ€™t wait to get @chatperdu and @whitneyfrenchwrites out your way so soon! @nwejinanarts #nwejinan #nwejinanarts #tletinqox #chilcotin #britishcolumbia #riskecreek

So unbelievably grateful to Tom and Cindy, the amazing youth Leadership Resiliency Group, and Anita and Katie the super VP team for the warmest of welcomes in Bella Bella. We are so excited for the programming this year with @ch.scott and @alyshabrilla who will be supported by a teachers Arts Commitee within the school! The amazing teaching team and the proactive, culturally strong, politically driven students at Bella Bella Community school bring so much positive energy to this project, we are convinced that only pure magic can happen when this much amazing combines in one place. On top of inspiring student and teacher convos and presentations, we ate and were gifted so much Salmon (which made it through airport security because @bbrreezzrr guilted the guy by telling him that kids gave it to us). We made it out on, not one, but TWO boats! Getting to ride out to Koeye Camp with the LRG and then out to Roscoe Inlet with the wonderful and generous Fran, Kelly and Charlie Brown on the most perfect day. Whilst riding around on boats, we got to see amazing historical pictographs and be told about the long and rich history of the territory with wind in our hair and sun on our cheeks. I am so happy that I got to make it out to this stunning territory once again and canโ€™t wait to see what comes of the @nwejinanarts programming this year. To follow what the students and artists are getting up to this year, follow: @bellabellanwejinan // #bellabella #nwejinan #nwejinanarts #britishcolumbia #salmon #roscoeinlet #heiltsukterritory

Heeeeeeere we go!!! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ@mikwchiyam @nwejinanarts training week has begun! What an incredible roster of artists, teachers and support staff we have this year. Big ups to @whitefoxstudiosmtl for designing our two Program Guides and @cherylvoisine for designing our new inPath Handbook! #mikwchiyam #creeschoolboard #nwejinan #nwejinanarts #inpath #artseducation #artistinresidence #teachingartists
Wonderfully inspiring evening watching all the strong and resilient First Nations youth perform for the @nwejinanarts Dreamkeepers Album Launch Concert tonight. Canโ€™t quite put into exact words how amazing of an experience it was to witness these youths rise up from challenging times to come together and create all this beautiful music. This got me ultra emotional. May the young ones continue to be empowered through meaningful artistic expression and carry on that positive influence for the future generations. Miikwehch โค๏ธ

First Video is for the song โ€œThe River Flowsโ€ by Pikangikum First Nation ; the Second is โ€œWhy Usโ€ by Tlโ€™aztโ€™en First Nation. .

Hi everybody! I'm out in Vancouver for the weekend with #nwejinanarts supporting the release of the new @nwejinantour volume 6 album. 170 indigenous youth from many nations are converging to share their music this weekend! I'm very fortunate to be able to witness this incredible event.

Chischisiititaatinaan - We're thinking of you. (Cree syllabics translation)
During the last two weeks I've been working with the students of Maquatua Eeyou School creating feathers for this goose with messages of hope, healing and encouragement for the elementary students of Joy Ottereyes Rainbow Memorial School. I was so honoured to facilitate this project and the high school students deserve all the credit for the beautiful result.  This mural is dedicated to the memory of the elementary students' classmate Jordyn who tragically passed away last month. We say chischisiititaatinaan Jordyn and all the students at Joy Ottereyes Rainbow Memorial School, we're thinking of you. โค๏ธ

Starting to paint and install the mural here in Wemindji. For the last two weeks I've been working with the high school students to create feathers of a goose that hold their hopes and dreams or words of encouragement that they want to share with the elementary school students to let them know they're thinking about them and they're loved.  A mural by youth for youth, and I'm so happy to facilitate this for them. Stay tuned for our progress and big up to Andromeda coming in to help out on a PED day! #nwejinanarts #mikwchiyam

Super proud of the @kitasoonwejinan residency with @drippin_soul - the mural unveiling at the Elders and Grandparent's lunch in the community hall could not have been more beautiful! There was singing, drumming, dancing and great food. Special thanks to Chief Charlie Mason (third photo) for his amazing storytelling which was the inspiration for our collective mural! GฬŒiaฬxฬŒsixฬŒa to the whole community!๐Ÿ™

Created with the youth of Gitxaala in the community centre, the sun begins to rise over Eagle Rock, a favourite place to play at low tide, as the four clans converge, eagle, raven, wolf and killer whale. The tree has a hint of budding life at the top like so many I've seen here, whether they were cut down or fall over, they are still resilient and never stop growing. I'm very happy to have created this with them and honoured by the trust (and snacks!) the community centre provided to let me facilitate this project! A special thank you to @kdobler for giving her free time to help paint as well! #nwejinan #nwejinanarts

While researching the collective mural we pulled down this amazing detailed model of the Big House here,  the 'House of Git-na-gun-a'ks'. It's got all the details, including the interior! So cool!
