In partnership with Cathedral Village Arts Festival, artist Joely BigEagle-Kequahtooway takes us on a walk-through of North Central Neighbourhood in Regina, Saskatchewan, exploring art, murals and buffalo connections to the land. She will share stories of how North Central got its nickname and how she is working towards reconciliation in the form of renaming streets, parks, and landmarks to represent the vibrant Indigenous communities that were here pre-contact.
Joely BigEagle-Kequahtooway is an inter-disciplinary artist whose main source of inspiration is Tatanga aka Buffalo. She is a fashion and textile designer, visual artist, beader, storyteller and co-founder of the Buffalo People Arts Institute. She comes from a long line of Buffalo hunters and is Nakota/Cree/Saulteaux from the White Bear First Nations - signatory to Treaty 4. She has degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Calgary and Mathematics from the First Nations University of Canada. She loves to incorporate mathematics and geometry in her artwork and is inspired by the perfect symmetry in nature. Her mantra envelopes everything Tatanga as it connects her to ancestral memories, the land and is the manifestational glue that keeps her world together.
