Singing Woman

Blue Feather Eagle Woman was not given her name until she was taken home to be buried on her Saskatchewan reserve.

She had a different name when I taught her in grades 4 and 6.

When I read that she had hanged herself in jail I made this mask of Singing Woman to help her spirit soar.

And because my grief for the child I once knew is great...

  1. That's a beautiful tribute to your former student. So many sad lives of pain and despair.
