Witness Blanket

The University of Regina Aboriginal Advisory Circle will be hosting the Witness Blanket exhibit January 5 – February 27, 2015

This large scale art installation is inspired by a woven blanket made from hundreds of reclaimed items  from Residential Schools, churches, government buildings and traditional and cultural structures including Friendship Centres, band offices, treatment centres and universities, from across Canada. The Witness Blanket stands as a national monument to recognise the atrocities of the Indian Residential School era, honour the children, and symbolise ongoing reconciliation.
