The Museum & Archives of Vernon is bringing together three Indigenous artists and storytellers.

Mariel Belanger, Shayla Raine and Kim Senklip Harvey will be at the museum July 16.

“The work of each of these women is so powerful,” says Amy Timleck MAV program co-ordinator. “To be able to bring them together, in person, and showcase their work in one place is so exciting.”

The day begins with a reading by Raine of The Way Creator Sees You, a long, free-verse poem about a Plains Cree boy named Kihew.

Raine is Nehiyaw Iskwew from Louis Bull Tribe in Maskwacis, Alta., who now lives with her syilx partner on Okanagan Indian Band land. A mother at age 15, Raine is now 23 years old and a member of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves and is studying human kinetics at UBCO.
