Indigenous Artists: National Indigenous Peoples Day 🇨🇦

Above/featured: Great Hall, Museum of Anthropology, Vancouver – 5 May 2017 (HL, 6D1).

In Canada, National Aboriginal Day is held on or near the same day as northern summer solstice to celebrate language, culture, and tradition on the longest day of the year. In 1996, then Governor-General of Canada, Roméo LeBlanc, proclaimed June 21 as National Aboriginal Day. In 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the change to National Indigenous Peoples Day to include First Nations, Inuit, and Métis indigenous peoples.

To highlight some wonderfully engaging work by contemporary indigenous artists, I provide examples of art seen and exhibited in the Vancouver area.

Fotoeins Friday: Springtime in the City (Vancouver)

In downtown Vancouver, residents and visitors bask in the warm spring afternoon sun at Robson Square on the steps to the old Provincial Courthouse, home now to the Vancouver Art Gallery. In the background, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is in shadow with sun behind localized cumulus cloud. This picture represents one of many living aspects to Vancouver in (northern) spring, especially after a prolonged period of the dull wet grey and when temperatures approach 20C/70F.

I made the photo on 22 March 2016 with the Canon EOS6D camera, 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/500s, f/14, ISO400, and 24mm focal length. I adjusted the image for geometric distortion and perspective correction. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8cJ.
