This drawing was created by Mi'kmaq artist Alan Syliboy. In his words, "This piece represents Chanie Wenjack making his way back to the creator. He travels through the Milky Way, where he is reunited with his mother once again. His spirit lives on without want or hardship."
"They Found Us," is a drawing created by Whitney Gould of We'koqma'q First Nation, incorporates an eagle, traditionally the one animal that can soar to the spirit world, and an orange sunset to represent the spirits of the 215 children found at a B.C. residential school making their way to the spirit world.
