Story 60: Unheard

The Musquiem people have a word  that means “things that are hidden”. The word is used to describe sacred objects, often ceremonial, that are thought to possess supernatural powers. These  objects are not simply art or functional things, they embody stories and histories, the threads that tie the past to the present, the future.  Because they are sacred, they are not displayed in the open, reminding us that not everything is meant to be seen, or heard.

“Unheard” is about survivors’ stories – of suicide, dispossession, fire, residential schools – that are often not told. (See Links 42)
