It is so true that art reflects a culture’s values and history. This article discusses some of Canada’s up and coming Indigenous artists. I was very impressed with the variation of mediums used. Artist Brian Jungen uses Nike running shoes to re-fashion traditional masks, and even a whale skeleton.
I think art is a fantastic window into the a people’s culture. Teachers can use the article and photos of art to compliment any class discussion on culture or art.
