It’s Wednesday and you know what that means... #TheArtandTheArtist 🤩

“Sge:no swagwegoh! Sendegehya:t neh gyah:soh. (Peaceful greetings, everyone! My name is He carries the night on his back).

My English name is Thomas Anderson, and I am from the Six nations of the Grand river. I was born into the turtle clan of the Cayuga nation.

One of my creative passions are painting. I have been working with acrylic paints lately, and it all started in a post secondary course with Six nations Polytechnic (SNP). I loved drawing growing up but I despised painting. Something about not being able to erase mistakes was very troubling to me. My self confidence was boosted when I started to show natural talent during the SNPcourse, and from then on it became my favourite way to express myself.

Making art connects me to something older than what words can string together, I feel. I feel free as the paint flows like water onto the canvas. I'm often inspired by words of my culture; be it stories, teachings, or prophecies. Sharing my gifts is my duty to the people and creation”

Thank you for sharing Thomas!

Today we are meeting Kymberly Farmer, she is Mohawk nation and turtle clan from Six Nations!

“Throughout my life, I have always been a creative bouncing from one thing to the next, not really settling on one fixed medium. When I started making beadwork I knew that it was something that was going to be in my life for the long run. I have a familial connection to working with beads and it feels so good to do something that I know my people have done since time immemorial.

I have had learning experience through Red Barn and my family but most of my work is self-taught. I am always thinking of the next big innovation in technique or design.

Through seeking new ideas, I have come up with my signature style. I took the tried and true daisy chain beadwork and have begun stitching it in masses to make earrings and medallions. This allows me to create miniature fields of flowers in wearable pieces of art. I am lucky to be able to do what I love for a living and to have such a special connection to my community and ancestors.”

Today’s ‘Art and the Artist’ introduces Connor Martin, a multimedia artist from Six Nations and the founder of @littlebrownbearmedia 🌾🤩

“I’m Connor Martin, from the Mohawk nation and bear clan.

I’ve just graduated with a BA in Media Production, from the RTA School of Media at Ryerson University. Throughout my schooling I produced multi-camera studio shows, a radio show, and in my final year, I directed a mini docu-series highlighting stories of Indigenous success, called ‘Faces of Resilience.’

My favourite medium to tell stories through is video. Whether its a 2 minute piece, or a 30 minute short film, there is a distinct feeling that storytelling through video can elicit from a viewer.

Upon graduating, I started my own multi-media production company, Little Brown Bear Media. I produce video, photography, and graphic design for small Indigenous businesses and individuals. I think it’s important for Indigenous people to be behind the lens, because we’re storytellers, and we have so many stories to be shared. It wasn’t until recent years that Indigenous stories started showing up in mainstream media, but it still isn’t enough.

Overall, my reason for creating through different forms of media is to stop waiting for someone else to start telling our stories, and start doing it alongside other like-minded Indigenous creatives. I aim to be a positive representative of my community through my work and hopefully be a role model for younger kids who want to do the same thing.”

Follow Connor’s business account @littlebrownbearmedia and @facesofresilience for information on her docu-series👍🏼🤩

Timeline PhotosChiefswood National Historic Site is home to this gorgeous porcupine quill table🦔🌾

Porcupine quill art dates back to pre contact, the quills would be acquired by plucking from the skin and stretching over a wooden frame.

To make the intricate patterns, the quills would be dyed from natural materials including cranberry, blueberry, as well as tea made from tree barks including sumac, elm, butternut etc.

You can visit Chiefswood National Historic Site and see this gorgeous table for yourself!
Now open on Friday’s 10am-4pm by appointment only! Call 519-758-5444 to book your visit🤩
