ABOUT THE COVER IMAGE AND ARTIST
We are so grateful to David Werner for allowing us to feature his beautiful artwork, and elements of it, in this annual report.

David is Michif/Métis His family members are Morrissettes from Duck Bay, Manitoba. Going back, his Parenteau family was at Batoche and going back further, they were at the Red River Settlement. Both his great-grandparents went to LeBret residential school around 1906. David’s interest in beadwork came later in life. He says, “We didn’t have any family beadwork pieces and I wanted to create beadwork for my children and future generations. I learned beadwork from Gregory Scofield and Amy Briley, since then all my designs are grounded in Métis and Northern Métis style.” David is a second year law at the University of Saskatchewan. He owns his own business that sells Métis-inspired stickers at metisstickerempire.ca.
