Mother Tongues - Art Installations to Track Down Downtown



Celebrating the beautiful Indigenous languages that are part of the history of Treaty 6 territory, you can see six different art installations downtown. 

They’re part of Explore Edmonton’s Downtown Spark project, featuring beautiful work from Edna Elias, Carol Powder & Cikwes, Lauren Crazybull, Maria-Margaretta, Taran Kootenhayoo, jaye simpson and Wanahae.


“These seven ancestral languages are embedded across the downtown core in amiskwacîwâskahikan. Visibility is powerful and to have the living languages which come from this land be seen in the midst of an urban environment speaks to the resilience and the survival of Indigenous people and languages.” - Explore Edmonton
