About the Artist:
Sarain Fox is Anishinaabe from Batchawana First Nation, just outside of Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario. She is passionate about empowering Indigenous communities and amplifying their voices, especially those of the youth. She is a multifaceted artist and activist who comes from a long line of storytellers. Her mother and great aunt are the oral record keepers of the family. They have passed down ancient teachings from generations of knowledge-keepers and have raised her to be proud of her Indigenous roots. As a result, Sarain has become a powerful and vibrant voice for the Indigenous community. She is a dancer, choreographer, stylist, activist, brand ambassador, television host and content producer. A storyteller at heart, Sarain has combined these various mediums to create a compelling social platform for amplifying the voices of her people. She uses her platform to celebrate the immense knowledge and talent of Indigenous people, designers and brands.
About the Art:
The Morningstar. I’ve had my traditional name, Wabunangokwe, my entire life. For that reason, I’ve carried my story and purpose. I have always seen star motifs as representative of my spirit. The neon colours are a modern take on my work as the Morningstar Woman. It is the brightest star of the new day that stays through the sunrise. It represents renewal. It is the light in the darkness; the reconciler. I created this piece for our bright young people that are standing up for truth - just like the stars guide our way forward.
