Their Story Must be Told by Marybriannemckay Their Story Must be Told by Marybriannemckay
This piece is called Their Story Must be Told. I picked it because I want to encourage survivors of residential schools to tell their story to add to the history of aboriginal people. I think the assimilation of aboriginal children isn't talked about enough, especially in schools. I have heard about the holocaust in nearly every grade since elementary school and residential schools mentioned only once or twice. I wanted to paint a picture to honor the survivors and deceased who were apart of it.

Acrylic on canvas.

Beautiful tribute.  Remember those who suffered, prevent repeating that history, teach those who survive to perpetuate a better future, better mindset through enlightment, faith, strength in unity. :rose:

You capture the emotion and feeling, one of my favorites ^^I like how at the top everyone's holding hands, but the dark feeling at the bottom.
