The BC Treaty Commission website features artwork created by Michelle Stoney and Alano Edzerza.
Michelle Stoney is a Gitxsan and Cree artist, specializing in acrylics, jewellery, sculptures, and murals. Michelle was raised in Gitxsan territory, in the house of Delgamuukw. She follows in her late grandfather Victor Mowat’s footsteps teaching art to local communities. The BC Treaty Commission’s 30th Anniversary logo was designed by Michelle. The artwork inlayed in the logo signifies the foundations of self-government: community, representing intergenerational leadership and connection; rich and sacred land and waters resources; and strong governance systems.
