Artwork description

Painted during Présence Autochtone, Montreal First Peoples Festival, the mural by Gene Pendon — Montreal artist involved with First Peoples communities in Nunavut — pays tribute to the Innu women of Northern Quebec fighting for respect and protection of their rich natural, historical, human and cultural heritage.

The central totem of female figures depicts generations and the passing down of knowledge, tradition, customs and storytelling between them. The background evokes the artist’s interpretation of the natural forces of the Northern land, sky, and fauna.

Cyndie Belhumeur and Arnaud Grégoire assisted the artist.
Calligraphy: Luc Saucier
