Community-based project and exhibition

The Shubenacadie River Beading Project is an activist, community-based project which honours the river space and life systems under threat of environmental damage created by Alton Gas. Home beading kits were distributed to 85 participants which, together, created a forty-foot beading of the Shubenacadie River. The exhibition contextualized the environmental racism and cultural genocide experienced by Mi’kmaq in nova scotia but focused on the importance of treaty relations, community connection, and the land.
