A new carving in the Legislative Chamber

Ontario’s Legislative Chamber contains a number of intricate wood carvings inspired by medieval symbolism. These pieces are beautiful and historically significant, but they lack representation from the Indigenous people in Ontario.

A new carving, illustrating the Seven Grandfather Teachings and created by Indigenous artist Garrett Nahdee, was recently added to the Chamber. This carving will serve as a permanent reminder of the history of Indigenous people in Ontario and symbolize new connections, relationships, and opportunities being fostered today.
