Six original artworks (below) were commissioned from Leah Dorion, a Métis artist based in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, to help tell the stories contained in Indigenous Canada. Leah's understanding of the importance of symbols and images in telling cultural knowledge, along with community input, guided her in developing each piece.
