As a young artist, Josy Thomas told ancient stories of the First People of Turtle Island; as a man in his prime, he draws from traditional themes and symbols to bring to life the stories of contemporary Indigenous people. The raw power of his stone carvings demand attention but it is the soulful expression of the Indigenous heart reflected in the eyes of his carvings that holds the viewer and compels him to understand the struggle between power and vulnerability that is the constant companion of 21st century Indigenous people universally.  Josy will be demonstrating his art form on Saturday and Sunday, July 1-2, 2017, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm, in the Iroquois Complex.
