About the project

anohc kipasikônaw/we rise/niipawi is a collaborative art project organized by the College of Arts and Science to celebrate Indigenous knowledge systems. Over the course of 13 moons, 13 carved stone steps are being installed at the Snelgrove Gallery. The steps, reclaimed from a slate staircase in the Thorvaldson Building on campus, have been hand-carved with Cree syllabics representing the traditional names of the 13 moons.

On Sept. 21, the last of the steps will be installed.

The collaboration is led by artists Lyndon Tootoosis, Dr. Sandy Bonny (PhD) and Vanessa Hyggen.
