Starr Kelly, Algonquin - Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg

"I often reflect on the traditional responsibilities Indigenous people have to our waters. Prayers past and present are given to the waters and in return, we are gifted with life. This medicine bag is dedicated to the gifts of water, and the people who protect it. It represents my prayers to our water beings."

Starr Kelly is a beadworker specializing in both flat and raised techniques from the Algonquin community of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. She is artistically inspired by the traditions and land which have sustained her people for generations. Through her work as an educator and artist, Starr celebrates Native resistance through self-expression and aims to challenge audience expectations of Indigenous people in the art world.
