Where Our Paths Cross – Reconciliation Commemorative Artwork Concept Presentations
Since 2015, the City has been working with the Saskatoon Tribal Council, Central Urban Métis Federation Inc., Office of the Treaty Commission, and other community groups, leaders, and institutions in Saskatchewan, to promote reconciliation.
In keeping with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Call to Action No. 79, the Saskatoon Tribal Council and the City are pleased to announce the three finalists for the “Where Our Paths Cross” Reconciliation Commemorative Artwork. The shortlisted finalists, in alphabetical order, are:
- Gordon Reeve;
- Rusnak-Gallant; and
- Sans Façon.
“Where Our Paths Cross” is a commemorative art project commissioned to explore Indigenous, settler, and newcomer relations in Saskatoon. The artwork is intended to convey that Saskatoon is in Treaty Six Territory, is homeland of the Métis, and is a welcoming community to peoples from all over the world. Finalists have been provided the option of siting their artwork in one of two locations: River Landing South or Victoria Park.
