Îyârhe Nakoda Youth
Stoney Nakoda youth honour their ancestors and their connection to this sacred land through art in this exhibition. By listening to the stories of Indigenous Elders, the youth learn important stories of Mini Thni, Treaty 7 Territory and its place on Turtle Island. This exhibition will also showcase the beautiful artwork and stories created during the Stoney Nakoda Heroes project of 2019 by students at Exshaw School.
