Golden Threads from Heaven – one small step towards reconciliation

No one knows the “absolute” answer on how to bring about reconciliation between Canada’s First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples, and those of us whose peoples displaced them, according to Debra Sparrow, a Musqueam weaver, artist and knowledge keeper. But any step taken in good faith to build a new, healthy relationship is a good one.

Sparrow made the comments while handing over two of her weavings, called “Golden Threads from Heaven” to the Parish of Christ Church Cathedral during the 10:30am Eucharist on April 7.

“This journey has been amazing, it has been a gift from God” Sparrow said of the process of taking her weavings from an idea in her mind to finished product.
