About the Artist:

Christi Belcourt is a Michif (Métis) visual artist with a deep respect for Mother Earth, the traditions and the knowledge of her people. In addition to her paintings she is also known as a community-based artist, environmentalist and advocate for the lands, waters and Indigenous peoples. She is currently a lead organizer for the Onaman Collective which focuses on resurgence of language and land-based practices. She was named the Aboriginal Arts Laureate by the Ontario Arts Council in 2015. In 2016 she won a Governor General's Innovation Award and was named the winner of the 2016 Premier's Awards in the Arts. Christi's work is found within the permanent collections many world-renowned galleries.

About the Art:

“My latest design takes its inspiration from Métis floral embroidery and beadwork patterns. Beadwork and embroidery were often done on black wool, but we also used smoked or white unsmoked hide as it was a perfect backdrop for the rich pinks, reds, purples, greens, and blues of the silk threads. As always, I take my inspiration from the land and think about those ancestors who walked before me, creating beautiful wearable works of art and, at the same time, creating an artistic legacy for future generations. The Grandmothers of old are always with us. They knew the land, the plants, and the medicines as they walked on Mother Earth. My wish for you all is that you will remember your grandmothers are always with you as you walk on your life’s path and that we can all rise to stand up for Mother Earth and the future generations.”

 Care instructions: Our artist collaborations are printed, delicate, white leather. They are not waterproof and should not be worn in muddy slush. Please spray them carefully with high-quality, new, silicon-based spray. Wear and tear can be covered with white shoe polish.
