We are thrilled that the opening reception was a resounding success! From the opening speeches, to performances in traditional song, poetry, fiddling and even a round dance -- we had it all and enjoyed sharing it with everyone!

Artists' statement:"Indiginesse is the culmination by valiant, contemporary Native women artists working to offer healing, education, and to inform all communities. May this exhibition bring greater compassion, understanding, health, and peace as we all seek to offer responsible caring towards all of our many communities."

In an impromptu visit to see Indiginesse, the Right Honourable Paul Martin called the exhibition
