JOIN US: In Conversation: Curator Adele ᒪᐢᑿᓱᐏᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau and Salisha Old Bull
North Van Arts invites the public to our first in-person activity in the gallery since March 2020. The pieces on display in Finding our Place: Beading and Weaving Our Culture Together are both beautiful and are inherently functional. They are used in the day-to-day, but also carry within them teachings for the younger generations. Part of the purpose of this exhibition is to relocate Indigenous culture, particularly weaving and beading, in the now. This is an opportunity to hear from Adele ᒪᐢᑿᓱᐏᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau and Salisha Old Bull as they unpack the various themes in the exhibition.
Due to gallery capacity limitations we will also be streaming the event live on our YouTube channel.

Salisha Old Bull
I am Salish and Apsaalooke and I was raised by my mother on the Flathead Indian Reservation, in Western Montana. My grandmother, and aunt had a large part in teaching me Salish values. I grew up admiring everything from the Salish cultural heritage. I also incorporate what I’ve learned from my Apsaalooke (Crow) background. I will strive to continue to practice our traditional lifeways throughout the seasons and pass them onto my children. This strong tie to our ways has allowed me to explore my love of art and integrate the love of Indigenous life into my work.
