This mural at 1060 Selkirk Ave. was painted in 2002, 14 years ago.
Half of it does not exist, anymore.
I would have loved to have seen it when new. Winnipeg has many murals devoted to our proud First Nations heritage.

Lovely, I really love the thematic of the mural and the different style of art a bit, at least different than what I usually see.
It is a very different style from today’s street art. Mural art tends to be less trendy, and this is from a bit ago. So glad you like it, and it has an historical depiction, as well.
The mural is great although I don’t like hunting, it’s a native American cultural theme. I’m able to comment with the iPhone, but the laptop doesn’t let me
I know how you feel. I’m a vegetarian, & hunting horrifies me. Nonetheless, appreciate that the original peoples of North America had not many options, and survived as they could at that time.
Commenting will clear up, I’m sure, but what a pain!
I know, this mural is very educational actually.
Yes, & I really like that!
Still looks like brand new though…
I agree! Also, I like it a lot! The thing about outdoor art is that it is ephemeral.
I’m amazed at how well this mural has weathered, and think it’s great that you have a way of memorializing the murals by photographing and featuring them. 🙂
Oh, thank you! Outdoor art is ephemeral, some lasts longer, some amazing pieces are gone in weeks. Perhaps this documentation will hold a socially relevant value one day.
I have a passion for Native American art living the last corner of the US…nice work…
Winnipeg, land of 600 + murals, features a lot of art that educates about the history of our First Nations peoples, features their traditional art, and features both traditional and more modern styles of their art painted by contemporary First Nations artists. I’ll be doing a post on Jackson Beardy’s art sometime in the spring.
🙂 I am so happy that you like it!
in the last corner…duhhh
Have always had great sympathy for native american culture as child I’d not be a cowboy – I was a very tanned boy because I was a real outdoor boy all year round wearing mostly only shorts – the shirts were for winterly weather in my head 😀 – the others called me a “redskin” – and I was proud, so the other “palefaces” almost always lost the games… 😀
I knew you would like this piece. ❤
You are one of the few boys who actually wanted to be an Indian. 😀 The game was called "Cowboys & Indians" on the prairies. 🙂
Of course the term Indians has been replaced by "First Nations" here in Canada. I quite like that, after all, they were here first.
Their traditional art is gorgeous & traditional clothing sometimes made popular by Rock Stars. I'm thinking mostly of fringed buck skin jackets worn by the likes of Hendrix.
😀 "LOL" I could go on & on, but I'll stop now.
⭐ Thank you for your wonderful & sensitive comment! ⭐

Great, aren’t they ?
Love Keemosabbee xoxoxo ❤ #<
LOL, it is a wonderful mural! ❤ xoxoxo #<
I love this, it reminds me of those ancient cave painting but brought into the 21st century.
Good thought on the style! I have been wondering how to describe it, as it looks different from any other street art/mural.
New cave art could be a different take on things. When ancient meets modern…
It sounds like a neo-movement that should be introduced. Sometimes the Graf writing makes me think of neo-hieroglyphics.
Wonderful to see the First Nations tribute. I am loving the eagle with the clouds behind it!
I’ve done several posts featuring First Nations. Some are educational. Some are traditional art styles or actually painted by contemporary First Nations artists. Hmm, I might have enough to do a page featuring this topic, and linking to all the posts, as time allows.
