Ruth Cuthand: Beads of Truth

Ruth Cuthand was born in Treaty 6 territory, in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. For more than 40 years she has used her art as a platform to speak about historic and contemporary settler/Native relationships and to challenge mainstream perspectives of colonialism. In 2020 she was presented with the Governor General’s Award for Visual Arts. Beads of Truth features beadwork that addresses the history of diseases introduced to Indigenous peoples from Europeans settlers, the poor conditions in which many live on reserves, and the effects of intergenerational trauma.

This exhibition was made possible due to support from the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Regional Foundation.
