Artists' Statements

Two Innu artists were chosen to create artwork for the Innu Tipatshimuna web site. Mary Ann Penashue is from Sheshatshiu in Labrador and Mara Thomas is from Ekuanitshu (Mingan) in Quebec. Their paintings depict aspects of traditional Innu life on the land. Elements of each painting have been used to give a highly original and attractive look throughout the site.
