Maada’ookii: s/he distributes something, distributes gifts, shares something with others.
One of the values within Indigenous ways of knowing is sharing and reciprocity, which resulted in the name for this exhibition. These recent artworks by Kristy Janvier, Annie Courchene, Frances Cooper and Tess Houston are the result of the ongoing relationships and dialogue built through the Indigenous Rural Arts Mentorship Program 2021/22 led by mentor Lita Fontaine, whose work is also featured.  
Maada’ookii: an oral tradition that in the past and in the present creates a sense of belonging and relationship to one another.
