This collage was prepared by the Metis youth group in the "Youth Voices Create Change" arts-based, participatory action research project. Research assistant Kate Elliot created a template onto which Metis youth were asked to document their sacred concerts related to transcending structural violence as Metis youth. Each one decorated a square in this mosaic and was interviewed on camera about their thoughts, their art and their vision for the future. Together, these art designs were placed within the whole to represent the group's collective spirit, vision and collaboration. This piece will be on display at the First Peoples House at the University of Victoria.
