Indigenous artists highlight climate change through art

Indigenous artists Christi Belcourt and Isaac Murdoch recently led a Community Art Build and participated in the opening reception for their Uprising The Power of Mother Earth retrospective in Thunder Bay.

“Most of our visual artwork focuses on the power of Mother Earth, which is why it is called Uprising The Power of Mother Earth,” says Belcourt, a Michif (M├ętis) visual artist and lead coordinator of the Walking With Our Sisters project. “We’re at a time where we are facing abrupt climate change and the Earth has already warmed significantly. All the scientists and Indigenous leaders and Elders have been pointing to this for a long time saying that we need to change. We need to get off fossil fuels — the warming of the Earth is threatening the existence of all living species.”
