Mural Title: Living With the Land
By: Grant McLaughlin, Moose Jaw, SK, 2013
Address: 55 Ominica St. W 18' x 24'
Description: This Mural pays honor to the Lakota Sioux, Cree, Assiniboine, Metis, and other first nation people who made Camp at THE TURN, in the Moose Jaw Valley, a natural oasis in the prairie that provided shelter, wood, water and food, and was mainly used in the winter. The Mural is bordered with diamond shaped geometric designs symbolizing and showing consideration and appreciation of nature. The bit of hide painting in the background helps to tie the design together and show a little of the importance of the horse and buffalo. The Sioux quote at the bottom is another recognition of traditional Aboriginal connection to nature and the world around them.
