Aboriginal artists tell tales through art.
By KATHY RUMLESKI, SUN MEDIA

While the National Day of Action last month was one way to get the message out about the plight of aboriginal people, Moses Lunham and Oswaldo DeLeon Kantule have another plan.

Through their art, they tell the tales of indigenous people in North and South America.

The two have combined their efforts to produce a unique show, which opened last Thursday at The Arts Project.

The Jaguar Meets The Eagle: Expressions of Contemporary Kuna and Anishnaabe Art draws attention to the difficulties, but also the beauties of indigenous life and strives for unity among all.

Lunham, an Ojibway from Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, said he supported the Day of Action, that drew attention to the poverty, social problems and land claim issues that discourage First Nations people. But he wants his message of his art to be positive.

"Unfortunately, the mainstream media focus on negative. (My art) is about positive energy.

"Indigenous cultures throughout the world are still very much alive and it's us artists who help keep it alive," said Lunham, who is also a freelance graphic artist.

Circles fill the work as a way to promote unity, but also to show the cycle of life. Animals are also predominant.

The invitation to the opening reception showed Lunham's painted eagle and a jaguar by DeLeon Kantule. The animals are used as ancestral symbols to unite the people of the Americas.

Using his wife Angela as an interpreter, DeLeon Kantule said he hasn't seen such a North-South collaborative art show before and he wanted to see what the effect would be.

"He does cultural promotion where ever he goes," she said.

"He wants to raise awareness about his people in Panama and Colombia, who also face racism."

DeLeon Kantule, who is a member of the Kuna nation, has been residing in London for several years.

His wife said he finds people here accepting, although when his sister came to conduct a sewing workshop as part of this exhibition, she received a lot of unexpected attention when she wore her traditional dress.

Besides the circle and animals, Lunham's and DeLeon Kantule's paintings use similar colours and design.

"Lots of people who have already visited the show have asked if they painted together because there's a visual similarity between them," Angela said.

Some of Lunham's art was completed as late as last week. "It's pretty fresh," he said.
