Was very excited to be part of the Making Treaty 7 Common Ground Dinner Series last night. Making Treaty 7 explores the historical significance of the events at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877, while investigating the consequences and implications of Treaty 7, 140 years later. Over a fabulous meal at the River Cafe  we discussed the artistic and cultural implication of Treaty 7 and how we perceive the land. This was the first of 3 dinners and set the foundations for some fabulous collaborations . . .

Over the years the piece has weathered, and there’s only a single piece remaining in place. Turnbull is transitioning the placards to feature another artist – Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim – so these photos document the final moments for this piece…
