Canadian Geographic commissioned this artwork by Métis artist and graphic designer Shaun Vincent (vincentdesign.ca) to represent all Indigenous Peoples in Canada. The piece includes an eagle (representing pride and strength), trees (growth and renewal), a wolf (focus and revival), an Inukshuk (communication and listening) and a mother and daughter (reconciliation and grieving).
