The act of storytelling is an act of Indigenous resistance, decolonization, and reclamation. We have a responsibility to hold on to our traditional knowledge. This series of screen prints are stories from the Deline of the Northwest Territories. As a Deline First Nation, Laura Grier feels obligated to learn and tell her peoples’ stories. It is imperative that she preserve and share stories and lessons to demonstrate the continuation of Indigenous culture.

Laura Grier is a Deline First Nation Printmaker, born in Yellowknife, who currently resides in Edmonton Alberta. In 2015, Grier graduated with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Fine Arts degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Halifax. Having grown up away from traditional lands, Laura tries to find ways to revitalize Indigenous culture and knowledge by using traditional print mediums. Laura’s art is inspired by the vitality of Indigenous art practices and is grounded in Indigenous worldviews and lived experiences.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 5, 7-9 pm.
