Witness Blanket

Inspired by a woven blanket, this large scale art installation is made out of hundreds of items reclaimed 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. As part of a cross-Canada tour, the Witness Blanket will be on display at the PWNHC from September-December, 2018.
