Common Truths

June is National Indigenous History Month, a time to honour the history, heritage, and diversity of Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

In the spirit of taking care of each other and focusing on the health and safety of our communities and physically-isolating, we are moving our celebrations of National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous People’s Day online.

Government House is honoured to share with you the current art exhibit in the Queen Elizabeth II Art Gallery which is presented by OSAC's Arts on the Move Program. The exhibit is entitled Common Truths with paintings by Donna Langhorne.

“Common Truths” continues Donna’s work of examining how challenges facing Indigenous people today can be identified and addressed artistically with reference to traditional teachings and concepts.

This exhibit is presented in Five Groupings, each grouping has a theme and uses a common shape. It confronts twenty (20) common truths impacting Indigenous people.

We are especially privileged to have Donna Langhorne speak to each one of her paintings in the videos. While the colours will grab your attention, the meanings behind each picture will make you linger.

To view the videos go to https://governmenthousesk.ca/educational-programs/active-learning-programs/common-truths- New videos will be posted on Mondays and Thursdays during the month of June. There are also activity pages posted that can be used to engage students / kids with this exhibit.
