In Anishnaabemowin, qua’yuk tchi’gae’win means “the honour of righting a wrong.”

Winding its way through three levels of the Gallery, Qua’yuk tchi’gae’win: Making Good acknowledges the residential school legacy and colonial trauma, but also reveals an enduring strength, resilience, and courage through art. In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action, this exhibit shares experiences of Indigenous and intergenerational survivors from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, as well as intercultural perspectives for a broader Canadian narrative.

Qua’yuk tchi’gae’win: Making Good brings together pieces from the WAG’s permanent collection by artists including Kudluajuk Ashoona, Carl Beam, Leah Decter, Rosalie Favell, Lita Fontaine, Robert Houle, Simon Hughes, Alex Janvier, Jessie Oonark, Jane Ash Poitras, Miriam Qiyuk, David Ruben Piqtoukun, and Arthur Renwick. The exhibition also presents works loaned by the University of Manitoba, and incorporates related archival collections from the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.
