Join the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) for a speaker event celebrating the completion of this important sculptural collection by renowned Inuit artist Angus Cockney (the Icewalker).
Through art, Ataa! Soona Luna? (Listen! What Moon?) interprets the Inuit stories of the year’s 12 moons as handed down from the Icewalker’s great-great-grandfather to his grandfather to the artist himself. Through this personal presentation about his journey translating these meaningful stories into physical sculptures, Cockney will share the importance of oral history in preserving Indigenous culture through the generations.
Two sculptures by the Icewalker will be on display during the event.
Date: Thursday, September 22, 2022
Time: Doors open at 7 pm, speaker starts at 7:15 pm
Location: Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre Auditorium
Tea and bannock will be available in the café after the event.
