This piece was Donated to the
Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal
4ftx6ft Acrylic and mixed media on Canvas- 2014
The title of the painting is “Still Dancing”
The idea for the title came from my little sister:
“Dancers dance for those who cannot, the sick, the elders, and those who are
gone. It’s like all those women are still dancing thru her. “
I was overwhelmed and very humbled (and honoured) to have so many share this piece of art on Facebook. I used my friend Berta KaKinoosit as the model for this, I tried not to make it look too much like her but people recognized her anyways.
I decided to donate this to the Montreal Native Women’s Shelter to raise awareness of Missing and
Murdered women in Canada. I hoped sharing it with others would bring this issue to minds of many people, and hope that none of our sisters, mothers, aunts or daughters will ever be forgotten.
