COMING HOME-SURVIVAL AND RESILIENCY THROUGH ART MACKAY INDIAN RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL CHILD MEMORIES

​Coming Home-Survival and Resiliency Through Art, MacKay Indian Residential School Child Memories, is a collaborative project between faculty members at the University College of the North (UCN) and University of Victoria (UVic). The “Coming Home” project was centered around 58 paintings that were created by survivors of the Mackay Indian Residential School (formerly located in Dauphin, Manitoba). The teacher and professional artist who helped students create the artwork and collected artwork from his students between 1958 and 1971, passed away in 2008 and his family gifted his collection of over 700 paintings to the UVic.
