Tracy Charette Fehr
Tracy Charette Fehr has traced her grandmother’s history all the way back to 1770 until 2020 which marks 250 years. Tracy’s exhibition, Heartbeat of a Nation: Metis Women 250 Years, is on at WAG-Qaumajuq this summer. Tracy made 250 handmade, smoke fired bowls which represent those 250 years to honour the lives of Métis women. 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.
