Yúustway / Take Care of One Another

Date: Saturday September 30th, 2023

Time: 12:00 pm

Join us for a cedar brushing ceremony led by The Polygon Gallery’s Joelle Johnston.

Ceremony starts at 12pm noon, gathering outside The Polygon’s entrance (east side).

Coffee and tea after.

In honour of Rebecca Belmore’s Hacer Memoria and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, The Polygon Gallery will be providing space for Indigenous people to heal through ceremony. The ceremony will witness the cleansing of Hacer Memoria, and cedar brushing will be offered to residential school survivors, and their descendants.

Yúustway means take care of one another in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh.

The final day to see Hacer Memoria and its companion piece Severance is October 1.
