Women Artists: A Lecture Series in the gallery featuring professors from Capilano University

Contemporary Indigenous bead artists express powerful matrilineal legacies of beauty and resilience that are rooted in ancient worldviews. This talk explores how Tlingit artists, using various materials, honour historical beading methods. These practices symbolize cultural perseverance and ties to the land, despite efforts to control and assimilate Indigenous peoples through laws and institutions.
