The artist will be present and will do a short reading and say a few words at 8pm.

Timiw is a small collection of words, composing narratives of moments and family ties that inform identity in the exploration of my Cree heritage and womanhood. Using the memories, struggles and sacred moments of time-shared, language and materiality to recreate moments that’s became defining in the understanding of who I am as a Urban Indigenous Women and the generational knowledge learnt that I carry with me every day.”

Created with generous support from Manitoba Arts Council
