Education Thru ART Workshop

White Bear Standing shares her Art and Heart!

White Bear Standing is pleased to share an effective visual demonstration that creatively and respectfully demonstrates  how Colonization and the residential school system  deeply affected our Indigenous brothers and sisters. Using traditional concepts of learning White Bear Standing can help your employees and students have a better understanding of what happened in the past and how they can help change the future!

She will share information about some of the tools that she uses in her day-to-day life such as the Medicine Wheel/Four Directions, the 7 Grandfather Teachings, the Talking Stick and Smudge. Her presentation includes a display of her Acrylic Paintings, Digital Paintings, Ink Drawings, Pastels & Photos!

White Bear Standing is a name that was given to Artist Sherry Crawford during a Shake Tent Ceremony many years ago. Sherry is a proud member of the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin Nation and has been learning about her own Algonquin  culture for the past 20 years through Ceremony, Workshops, Elders Gatherings, Conferences & Research. She has been painting and drawing for many years and has found many of her Teachings make their way into her Art.

In 2005/6, Sherry returned to school and earned a degree In Social Service Work through First Nations Technical Institute, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory & St. Lawrence College. She was honored to be a circle member at Niijkiwendida Anishinaabe Kwewag Services Circle 2005/6. She enjoyed a week long Indigenous Women & Leadership Development Training course at the Banff Centre in 2009. Sherry is an active member of the Odey Women’s business Network and sits on the Cultural Advisory Committee for KMMAN

She is trained and has worked as an Archaeology Liason for the Algonquins of Ontario.

Sherry continues to learn about her Algonquin history and will continue to

CREATE her ART with Heart!
