In the summer of 1999, the Fédération Franco-TéNOise brought together some of the greatest aboriginal, french and english artists to create this monumental sculpture.

Sonny McDonald, Métis from Fort Smith
John Sabourin, Dene from Fort Simpson
Eli Nasogaluak, Inuvialuk from Tuktoyaktuk
Armand Vaillancourt, Québécois from Montréal
Chris Ishoj, Canadian from Mansonville.

The Cultural Crossroads of Yellowknife, an evolving artistic site, comprises three elements so far:
# a copy of a bronze sculpture created by three aboriginal artists (the original, carved in ancient marble at least 2.5 million years old from the banks of Great Slake Lake, is exhibited in the hall of the Legislative Assembly building)
# a steel structure based on a dene teepee, created by André Boulanger
# a mural composed on 1500 signs and symbols representing life in the Far North, designed by Vaillancourt, Ishoj and Boulanger : hands, paws, animals, circlesmains, pattes, cercle, animaux, etc.

The Cultural Crossroads of Yellowknife is a meeting place of the talents of the North and the South, the East and the West. As such, it bears witness to the creative synergies of different cultures working together.

Yellowknife has a lot of street art... this is the largest example... see my image at
