A group of high school students and teachers in Prescott have created a public art display to commemorate local Indigenous culture.
The “One Feather at a Time” mural was created by South Grenville District High School students and unveiled at a ceremony Monday night.
The painting depicts spread wings, and each feather has a unique design that represents an aspect of Indigenous culture.
“By choosing feathers for this mural, we were able to express and appreciate our learning this year in a variety of ways, and this will leave a lasting imprint on the future,” says Christine Sloan, one of the teachers that helped coordinate the project.
Sloan wants to see images of the mural shared outside of Prescott.
“We hope that you take tons of pictures with this, plaster it all over social media, and let the world know that Prescott does appreciate our First Nations, Metis, and Inuit cultures.”
If you want to see the mural for yourself, it’s east of the Sandra S Lawn Harbour and Marina, on the Heritage River Trail.
