The Days of Augusta – Photographs by Robert Keziere

Opening Reception: Friday, September 8th at 5pm
Film Screening + Dialogue: Saturday, September 30th at 7pm

The Days of Augusta is an exhibition that brings together photographs, audio and text that shares the story of Augusta, a Soda Creek Elder who died in 1978. Christened “Mary Augusta Tappage,” Augusta was born on February 11, 1888 in Soda Creek, BC. She was the daughter of Christopher [Alex] Tappage, a Shuswap Chief, and Mary Ann Longshem, a Mètis woman. Widowed as a young woman, Augusta raised her own children, taught herself midwifery skills and helped raise many other children in the area. This exhibit includes Keziere’s recordings of Augusta sharing stories, playing the harmonica and singing cowboy songs, as well as a selection of photographs that have never been seen publicly.

Medicinal Intentions for a Forest

Lead Artist: Lara Felsing

Lara Felsing will lead a workshop that invites participants to learn about the Medicine Wheel in Indigenous traditions and how plant medicines and making can be a gesture of care for our forests. The workshop invites the community to join Lara and stitch a personal handwritten intention for the local forests onto the Medicine Wheel blanket. The Medicine Wheel blanket was made with traditionally harvested plant-dyed second-hand fabrics and hand-stitched with remnant cotton thread. The blanket advocates for protecting all forests, and is a gesture of care and gratitude for the invaluable gifts provided by Mother Earth. The finished Medicine Wheel blanket will be exhibited in the Branching Songs Exhibition.
