John and June Allcott Gallery: Wendy DesChene, Kawii Otinum
Canadian Indigenous artist Wendy DesChene graduated with an MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art and immediately incorporated materials that would support activism. "Kawii Otinum" translates to "Reclaim" in Michif, the distinctive language of the native Métis in North America.
