ABOUT THE WITNESS BLANKET
The Witness Blanket, an art installation created by Kwagiulth artist and Master Carver Carey Newman (Ha-yalth-kingeme) and inspired by the traditional woven blanket as a symbol of protection and comfort, evokes the atrocities of Indian Residential Schools and a national journey toward reconciliation. The blanket is comprised of hundreds of objects and artifacts collected on gathering trips over the past year to residential school sites, churches, courthouses, government buildings, and traditional and cultural structures across our country.
The Witness Blanket is part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Commemoration Initiative. It will be displayed at the University of Victoria until June 8 and later this year will embark on a cross-country tour.
