INTERVIEW: Jared Tailfeathers

Program: The Almanacs

Length: 21 minutes

A new Indigenous mural has been completed on UCalgary’s Foothills campus. Jared Trailfeathers was the Indigenous artist mentor for this project, working with three other Indigenous artists. Jared talks about his connection to the School of Medicine through his late father and the process of coming together with other First Nations to create the mural. We discuss the importance of this placemaking project, Indigenous approaches to medicine, and the importance of visual story telling.
