Product Details

"Zhiishiibi-Zhiibiing: Duck River" is a painting of the shores of Lake Pittowinipik (Winnipegosis), which was a traditional fall gathering place with abundant fish and game. Around 1964, Manitoba Hydro started operation of the Grand Rapids Generating Station to provide power to the people of Manitoba. Unfortunately, Manitoba Hydro's project caused and continues to cause alterations to the natural environment, which ultimately negatively impacted local trappers. This painting is dedicated to my family and ancestors who fished and trapped on these shores. Che miigwetch to the land, water, air, fish and game that fed and sustained our families and culture. Northern pike/jackfish have been found to be at least 8000 years old, and the two jackfish in the painting represent a deep and ancient connection to land, water and place, despite disruption.
