The finished Community Quilt created by various members of our communities far and wide to honor and remember Residential Boarding School Children. The quilt was completed by tribal members Sue Garrett and Mary Ann Hussey. Remaining squares will be added to another quilt in the near future.
The "back side" of the Community Quilt. If you can see the stitching of the quilt is fashioned in the shape of tiny hands. The quilt is absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't have done it without our wonderful community. Miigwech!

Florida artist Scott Killips donated one of his paintings to the Advocacy Resource Center to show his support in the fight to prevent Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. ARC staff was humbled by the kind donation.
Please note that all squares were not able to be used in the quilt. It would have been far too large. We are going to work on having a second quilt made from the extra squares. However, they were displayed proudly at the unveiling of the Community Quilt. Chi Miigwech to everyone that created a square for this beautiful project. Special thanks to Sue Garrett and Mary Ann Hussey for their work in completing this work of art. Miigwech!Learn More
