Regional Outreach Exhibition – Otipemisewak: The People Who Own Themselves

Erin Stagg

The Cree called the Métis Otipemisewak, or “the people who own themselves,” because they followed the beat of their own drum. This series of acrylic paintings by Prince George-based interdisciplinary artist Erin Stagg captures this intangible spirit of the Métis culture by illustrating stories of the Métis people through her own family history.
