The Kapow/Onshore Métis Program offers an array of works by some of Turtle Island’s most compelling Michif/Halfbreed/Mixed-Blood artists. Working in mediums and styles as unique as the landscapes which hold our stories, this selection highlights our vital and transformative relationships with each other, the waters, and the land. Kapow/Onshore acknowledges the sovereign perspectives and contributions of our kin over time, while engaging both audiences and community in our journey back to uplifted unity. A Métis Kitchen Table Talk will accompany the program with Cathy Mattes, Sherry Farrell Racette, Jason Baerg, Jessica Lea Fleming, and invited Community members.
