About the event
Frog Hollow Integrated Art Experience is hosting Martin Millen, First Nation Traditional Healer and Lodge Conductor. Artists Shawn Arscott, Darlene Dove from Earthdance Studio and Biljana Banchotova(Webb) from Whirling Wisdom Studio in collaboration with Martin Millen created four 5’ x 5’ acrylic floor paintings on canvas: “The Earth World”, “The Human World”, The Spirit World”, and “The Sky World”. These paintings, otherwise known as “sacred hoops”, are as a teaching tool to share Ojibway oral knowledge of the four races coming together at the sacred fire. Each of the four races were given two gifts each. As humanity has reached a crossroad, we are asked to bring these eight gifts together to create One Great Nation. The gift of the Red Nation is to carry the Earth and Spirit knowledge. It is through the Sweat Lodge that the Red Standing People communicate this understanding. Martin will utilize these paintings to communicate sacred knowledge, to develop cross-cultural relationships and to reconnect all people back to good relations with the Earth.Guests are asked to arrive by 1:30pm. The paintings will be on display at the Storytelling Tipi at SpiralGate of Art and Wellbeing. The three artist will be present to share their journey with the paintings. Martin Millen, will then share indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing that are communicated through the paintings. There will be also space for interactions, questions and answers.
