Speaker of Truth

"This motivation for this painting was my response to Canada's Truth and Reconcilliation hearings on the Indian Residential School system which was the official policy of destroying the Indigenous cultures. For many years The eagle feather has been used in healing circles among many Native people. Each person holding the feather, in turn, speaks while the other participants listen, the feather symbolizing the truth of the speaker's words." -Kakwirakeron R. Montour
