Njiknam is a series of photos silkscreen printed onto birch bark-dyed cotton. The prints are embellished with small highlights of applique beadwork and caribou tufting. These works are inspired by and feature my younger brother, Matt. The photos follow Matt’s land-based experiences through the seasons. The series explores the relationship between being a modern Mi’kmaw person and engaging in traditional Mi’kmaq practices. It explores the blend of Newfoundland and Mi’kmaq cultures and challenges the stereotype of what cultural practice looks like. Nijknam invites visitors to view the experience of land-based Mi’kmaq culture.
