Christi Belcourt is one of Canada’s preeminent Métis visual artists. One of her designs was selected this summer to be rendered into stained glass and installed in the House of Commons in Ottawa. The work is in honour of residential school students and families. Belcourt celebrates the beauty of the natural world, often in floral patterns inspired by Métis and First Nations historical beadwork art.
