The photo above was taken in Quaqtaq, a small community on the Ungava coast in Nunavik, Northern Quebec. The young girl is my friend's daughter and we were all headed out on the land to enjoy the warm day. It was a beautiful afternoon in May and a perfect day to be out on the land.
Our Canada is a land of people from many different nations, tribes and tongues. The lyrics of our national anthem aptly portrays our enthusiasm and pride in our dear country. The first peoples of Canada: First nations, Inuit and Metis, through many centuries have established cultures and traditions that for us at Northern Expressions forms a fundamental basis for that pride. Their visual art especially, is a proud testament of the depths of talent, inspiration, skill and quality that is Canada's.
Since the 1950's the awareness and appreciation for Canadian aboriginal art has grown. Northern expressions is proud of Canada's aboriginal heritage and achievements through art and we want you, our visitors and customers to enjoy our pride.
This is a new journey for us and as Shakespeare said, "...the eyes sees not itself but by reflection...." You are invited to send your comments and feedback as we walk this road together.
Thanks a lot!
