Indigenous Placemaking at the New Central Library

When you head inside the new Central Library, you’ll be welcomed with a colourful and vast wall mural, a tremendous collaboration by Indigenous artists Keegan Starlight, Kalum Teke Dan, and Roland Rollinmud.

Inside the civic concourse, you’ll find a thought-provoking life-size buffalo sculpture by Lionel Peyachew, made up of metal letters that spell various words in Indigenous languages. 

Head up the building, to Level 4, and you’ll find the Elders’ Guidance Circle, a space where anyone can access elders, Indigenous programming, and more. The room features a stunning table and distinct furniture by Glenna Cardinal and a large photo and text-based piece by Brittney Bear Hat.
