Artist Jordan Stranger has organized a beautiful photo summary and description of these 2 Murals on his website, including their unveiling; which can be viewed here.

Jordan's concise description of these 2 Murals are reproduced here:

Tree of Life (photo 3)- This Mural is focussed on the urban indigenous spirit within the city of Winnipeg in harmony with nature. The roots will be the seven colour rainbow, with 2 spirits speaking on either side. The tree of life represents our connection to the earth and to the prayers we all have. It is surrounded by nature, the moon on the left and the sun on the right. Within a heart blooms a flower with a male and female youth at the top supporting a white feather which represents balance. Tobacco leaves are also flowing throughout the design as an offering of thanks to all who took part in this process.

We will carry your Spirit (photo 4)- This was made in memory of the youth at CEDA and their memory of their friend Yassin. The youth (his friends) holding him up, along with a teacher in the center of the group while he is greeted by the creator in the sky. A rainbow is also in the sky connected to him as he ascends. Tobacco leaves are also flowing throughout the design as an offering of thanks to all who took part in this process.
