Cassie Duquette-Schaan, "The impact of residential schools"
Artist: Cassie Duquette-Schaan, Grade 12
Title: The impact of residential schools
Medium: Mixed media
Dimension: 18 x 24 inches
Artist's statement: The dark and deadly past of Canada resulted in the death of thousands of innocent children as well as the loss of children to the families. This art piece puts faces to those innocent children that got ripped from their family homes and stripped of their individuality and culture. May we never forget the horrible past of “our home and native land”.
Teacher: Joan Hart, Bishop Murray High School, Saskatoon
