A colorful quilt will be the newest addition to the Indigenous artwork scheduled to be housed in Mount Royal University’s Iniskim Centre. The quilt work was embroidered in partnership between Michelle Gladue and Coral Williams, two university students who were paired up for a summer program dedicated to environmental research and Indigenous and non-Indigenous collaboration.

Gladue and Williams are one of eight Canadian teams who worked together on the SINEWS project — a grant dedicated to supporting female undergraduate students in science and technology and  building positive relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.
