Amazing Artwork by Carrielynn Victor
Teaching and Learning has recently acquired artwork by Stó:lō artist Carrielynn Victor. The artwork will be a central part of an online course being developed on Indigenizing the Self. Ms. Victor says, “This piece shares a message of togetherness. The birds show us, sometimes, even when we are flying in different directions we can still be in synchronicity. This shows in flocks of birds, and it also can be recognized in our work as people.” Please drop into the ThinkerSpace, G124, to view this artwork.
