About the publication…

In 2019 [shooger-koht-ed] was exhibited at Urban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art Gallery through Sacred Sounds: Legacy of Anishinaabemowin1 project. Urban is proud to release our new publication of the show in two separate books in the Indigenous languages of Cree and Ojibwe.

“Out of the twenty thousand to one hundred thousand words the typical English-speaking adult knows, the word sugarcoated is a go-to description used by different people in different situations to describe the rhetoric surrounding Indigenous rights. Many agree. From the works of four artists, our attention sways between the different thoughts and emotions that are felt when unpacking that sugarcoated language.” – Janell Henry, Curator

1The Sacred Sounds: Legacy of Anishinaabemowin project by Urban Shaman Gallery celebrates the individual and collective efforts to maintain and strengthen language revitalization by Indigenous artists, linguists and educators from North America.
