Event description
Join Emily Baker, Curator at the Art Gallery of St. Albert as we explore our winter exhibition, We Are the Medicine by Lana Whiskeyjack.

About this event

Lana Whiskeyjack is a multidisciplinary artist and scholar from Saddle Lake Cree Nation, Treaty Six, Alberta. As the title of the exhibition suggests, her work is an act of recognition and gratitude to ancestral medicine, restoring balance and nêhiyaw perspective.

Tour participants will be introduced to Whiskeyjack’s deeply personal rendering of the nêhiyaw teachings of the Thirteen Sacred Moons. Passed on in ceremony and from community knowledge keepers, the teachings remind iskwêwak and diverse genders of their sacred relationship to nurture and safeguard the cultural lifestyle of the community.

Please note, we are part of the provincial government’s Restriction Exemption Program. Proof of full vaccination, documentation of a medical exemption or proof of a negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours will be required for entry. Masks and social distancing are also required.

Drop in participants will be admitted if space allows.

Dates: Tuesday, December 7 at noon and Friday, December 17 at noon

Location: Art Gallery of St. Albert (19 Perron St.)
