Indigenous School Project

Indigenous School Project
St. Joseph Truth & Reconciliation Project 2021
The students and staff worked together to create a Métis dot art map of Canada on September 29 for Orange Shirt Day.


The Indigenous Art Project was inspired by the Métis Trade Routes of the Pacific Northwest map that was donated to the school last year by the West Kootenay Métis Society. The map was created by two Métis artists, Kristi Bridgeman and Lisa Shepherd


A special thanks to West Kootenay Métis Youth rep, Charly Defouw, for coming to the school to teach the students Métis dot painting. 


Great work St. Joseph!
