Artist Teresa Altiman, whose work is featured on the banners on Turtle Island Walk, has lent her talents to support the Alternative Spring Break project.
Greeting cards bearing images she painted, each featuring a feather of a bird native to the area, are available for purchase in the Campus Bookstore. Inside, the cards feature the seven Indigenous traditional teachings: honesty, humility, wisdom, courage, truth, love, and respect.
A portion of each purchase will help to offset costs for student volunteers to visit one of two locations — Costa Rica or Altiman’s home of Walpole Island First Nation — during Reading Week.
The cards are available individually for $3 apiece or as a boxed set of all seven for $20.
