Witness Blanket:

This exhibition about the Witness Blanket is a story that comes from the heart, mind and hands of master carver Carey Newman (Ha-yalth-kingeme).

“Strewn in the wake of the Indian Residential Schools are an immeasurable number of broken or damaged pieces. These fragmented cultures, crumbling buildings, segments of language, and grains of diminished pride are often connected only by the common experience that created them.”


Through the eyes of their Métis ancestor, Suzette (Chalifoux) Swift, two artists interpret the endemic flora and fauna of the family homestead in the Rocky Mountains.

“When her art found her relatives, the land called them home.”

Lisa Shepherd and Kristi Bridgeman, Métis artists, met serendipitously through an artist group, where they exchanged stories of family and ancestry. As they pieced together their stories, they began to realize their connection through their common ancestor.
