New mural at SaskPolytech celebrates Indigenous cultures

November 2, 2016

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is celebrating Indigenous cultures with a new mural at its Moose Jaw campus. “The Moose Jaw Aboriginal Student Achievement Plan committee set out with a theme of ‘gathering’ because we felt that Sask Polytech has really become a place where Indigenous individuals come together and are supported by the community they are a part of,” said Jason Seright, director of Aboriginal Strategy at the school. The mural was painted by Calgary-based artist Anna Crop, but designed and completed in collaboration with the Moose Jaw Aboriginal Student Achievement Plan committee. “We weren’t always welcome in the education environment,” Seright told the Moose Jaw Herald. “When you see things like [the mural]… it really hits home and it makes me feel like we belong and I can imagine and hope it does the same for our students.” NationTalk | Moose Jaw Times Herald
