Event Details

Nitssaakita’paispinnaan: We Are Still In Control features
work by three contemporary Blackfoot artists, all working in different
styles. We all gathered in a series of visits with Blackfoot ceremonial
knowledge keeper Kayihtsipimiohkitopi (Kent Ayoungman), who shared about
Blackfoot ways of life, places, and knowledge. Those visits helped us
learn more about ourselves, the places we live, and the responsibility
we have here to each other and our future generations. They also
inspired these artworks for the Blackfoot people, culture, and
ceremonies are still very much here, still shaping our society to this

Curated by Troy Patenaude and Kent Ayoungman and organized by the
Art Gallery of Alberta, TREX Region 2. This exhibition was generously
funded by Syncrude Canada Ltd.
