Artist statement

‘As this young Cree child dances to the beat of drums that were heard through our vast country hundreds of years ago, a shadow of a bird is created. This bird is perhaps a messenger of learning. Teaching me that as a young Canadian my future is full of hope and promise. Canadians that came before me helped lead the way for me to be safe, free and educated. It was their strength that has brought me my future. It is now my turn to carry on the traditions as well as learn new traditions as we welcome new Canadians and cultures to our land. I am a proud Canadian, hopeful for our next 150 years.’
– Joshua
