Reconciliation Mural by Kevin PeeAce
A Reconciliation mural was designed by Kevin PeeAce with inspiration from 185 students at the four local schools.
This collaboration was funded through a Development Grant from Sask Arts. Students also painted portions of the mural in June. A ceremony was held on June 21. Thanks to Elder Stuart Bitternose for his Blessing, Harold Littletent for sharing traditional dances, and to Bryan McNabb of Horizon School Division for helping to coordinate the ceremony. Thanks also to Public Art Chair Barrie Broad for being the MC, and to Kevin PeeAce for sharing his personal story about the mural and Reconciliation.
We are appreciative of the support of the schools in Humboldt, and specifically Cathy Korte-Monz, Jackie Bay, Celeste Leray-Leicht and Chloe Monz for coordinating the painting by their students.
