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 11 x 16 inch 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.
