Well, the ceramic tile mosaic of the Wolf Clan Mother is installed on Muskoday First Nation.
But, it never would have happened without the help and endurance of Jay Kimball and Shannon Smith.
Shannon spent two days inserting all the necessary tiny tile pieces into the spots that were missing tile–a job coveted by very few. Plus, she helped polish for the better part of an afternoon. Additionally, Jay Kimball agreed to a very long day of travelling, grouting, polishing, and installing on the powwow grounds.
The mosaic will be celebrated with a ceremony on the Saturday of Culture Days Weekend. But, in truth, the mosaic will be celebrated for years to come when people gather for ceremony and tradition on Muskoday First Nation’s Powwow Grounds.
