NOVEMBER 2018

2017 showcase

TRUTH. YOUTH. RECONCILIATION.

 
 

Oki. Aba Wathtech. Dadanast'ada. Tansi. Bozhoo. Hello. 

Developed by a team of Blackfoot Elders, students from diverse Nations, and faculty from Mount Royal University, OTAHPIAAKI 2018: PRIDE & PROTEST presents 28 fashion designers, artists and creatives from 18 Nations on Turtle Island November 5th - 10th, 2018.

Anchored to Call-to-Action #83, OTAHPIAAKI’s goal is to invite and contribute to significant social, cultural, restorative, and economic reconciliation across reserves, communities, regions, and territories by promoting, protecting, and providing resources and capacity building by using a ‘seed-to-runway’ social enterprise model that unfolds alongside a program of research in our workshop. In 2018, we are inspired by Nitsi’powahsinni, in Blackfoot, a celebration that carries the breath of the ancestors. Ish'nyes. So'kapi. Siyisgaas. Hiy'hiy. Chi-miigwech. Thanks.
