ašiihkiwi neehi kiišikwi ‘Earth and Sky’

About this theme

We will look at Myaamionki as a three-dimensional space that includes the earth and the sky. We will follow the movement of nipi ‘water’ in order to explore the connections, cycles, and dependencies that link all of the elements in and on the earth and in the sky. From this experience, participants develop a better understanding of the responsibility we bear for our actions in Myaamionki.

2021 Art Exhibitions

In June 2021, the Myaamia Heritage Museum and Archive will host a featured exhibition for art projects from Eemamwiciki Summer Programs participants. This will include work related to the 2020 theme and the 2021 theme: ašiihkiwi neehi kiišikwi ‘Earth and Sky.’
