Abstract:

"In Honour of our Grandmothers is a fascinating and powerful collaboration of four very talented and dedicated artists. This collection of visual art and poetry explores the dignity, beauty, and cultural heritage of two distinct cultures. It honours the traditional cultures of the First Nations and Jewish people and celebrates their survival. Experiences of oppression, religious intrusion, forced assimilation and cultural genocide are examined through vision and voice. In Honour of our Grandmothers is unique in its portrayal of the parallel struggles of two juxtaposed cultures who survive and flourish in the cultural web of Canadian society."--Book jacket
