Honouring Our Grandmothers Healing Journey
Presentation led by Nadine Spence (Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, Coastal Salish, British Columbia, Canada).
Honouring Our Grandmothers Healing Journey is a movement of humanity with the natural world. It honors the grandmother’s lived experiences, story and legacy left for those of us to discover and share through storytelling, teachings, ceremony and art. The heart of this journey is the stories told by different Indigenous artists of the Pacific Northwest. Through the visual artwork they place on their cedar bentwood travelling message chest and the experience they share.
Come in person or register for the online webinar.
Nadine Spence is a Nlaka’pamux and Secwepemc woman and a graduate of the University of Fraser Valley in fashion design who created opportunities through curating arts and cultural events, producing, directing, and managing fashion shows and workshops. Her visual art and creative writing are an introspective of her Indigenous female life, including finding growth and hope through the arts. Her work involves the spirit, mind, body, and heart, all in direct relation to the natural world and its spirituality. Nadine is the lead visionary artist and curator of the Honouring Our Grandmothers Healing Journey and the first of 13 Indigenous artists to decorate an Honouring Our Grandmothers traveling message chest.
