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.
