Artistic element to healing

The IHA is hanging seven of Paul’s works in three locations that offer counselling and addictions services in an effort to make the areas more welcoming to First Nations clients.

The IHA is hanging seven of Paul’s works in three locations that offer counselling and addictions services in an effort to make the areas more welcoming to First Nations clients.

Also on display are a fish weir built by students at Sk’elep School and shadowboxes containing a Secwepemc prayer, eagle feather and other traditional healing tools.

More of Paul’s work is on display at IHA offices on King Street and in Royal Inland Hospital.

Brad Anderson, the IHA’s director of aboriginal health, said the project was funded through a federal-government program and has been in the works for about a year.

He said consultations with the TIB helped the IHA “get what they wanted to see.”
