Tracy Charette Fehr has traced her grandmother’s history all the way back to 1770 until 2020 which marks 250 years.

For Heartbeat of a Nation, Fehr has created 250 handmade, smoke fired bowls which represent those years and honour the lives of Métis women. Fehr argues that Métis women have not received their due or recognition in the birth of the Métis Nation, so this is her way of bringing more awareness of the strength and resiliency of Métis women’s lives to the community.

In partnership with Infinity Women Secretariat and the Manitoba Métis Federation, each of the bowls will be gifted to Métis women across the province at the close of the exhibition.
