Curated by Wendy Peart, Curator of Education and Community Outreach

Métis artist Leah Marie Dorion shares the moon teachings. Important to Indigenous women’s wisdom and traditional cultural knowledge, the moon teachings honour women as vital life-givers. The moon, known by many Elders as “Our Grandmother,” marks the passage of time. It provides wisdom, comfort, protection and strength from its position above us in the sky. Through her work, Dorion restores Indigenous women’s teachings and connects us to the sacred and healing natural law cycles.

Leah Marie Dorion is an interdisciplinary Métis artist, teacher, filmmaker and writer from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Dorion holds a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Saskatchewan and a Master of Arts from the Athabasca University. She has received numerous awards and grants and her work is held in many public and private collections. Dorion is a published author of books about Métis history, cultural teachings and storytelling.
