Wind Stories in Pikangikum


Wind Stories in Pikangikum

In February 2020, the Jamii team traveled to Pikangikum First Nation in Northern Ontario to bring to life "The Stories The Wind Carries", Jamii's intra-provincial project.

We partnered with the Pikangikum Education Authority and Eenchokay Birchstick School to invite people to create a portrait of fellow community members. In total, we created 18 portraits, involving 36 people in the project.

Through sharing our stories together, the project intends to create bridges between 4 communities: Toronto,  Wawa/Michipicoten First Nation, Wolfe Island and Pikangikum First Nation.

This initiative was supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
