Kwilul (I Search For You)
Hidden in plain sight, St Ann wears peaked hood with L’nu (Mi’kmaq) double curve motifs, as observed in a Mi’kmaw church. A reflection on the symbolism of hidden knowledges, survival, cultural preservation. St. Ann as a symbol reappropriates Indigenous ecological and cosmological knowledges practiced prior to contact, and is a saint of forgotten grandmothers. The making of this work coincides with trying to locate the records and ancestors of Nancy Doucette, my maternal great grandmother.
