Nomomente is an educational organization that promotes conversation and knowledge exchange, and informs international law and policy about Indigenous and local community perspectives. We believe that Indigenous and local communities have much to contribute to a brighter future for all of us. Ensuring that their voices are heard is the only way to understand and learn all they have to teach. Their stories are not only important for us, but also for future generations. We aim to translate Indigenous and local community perspectives as far as possible into best practices by engaging Indigenous and local community members and groups through various educational events and projects.

December 2017 - Bruno Canadien

Bruno Canadien’s art is focused on addressing issues surrounding the intersection of First Nation/Tribal sovereignty, resource exploitation and environmental concerns. He uses mixed media, including collage, adornment, painting and drawing to present evidence of contemporary Indigenous presence and resistance. His more recent work considers the concern aboriginal communities in western Canada and the U.S. have for territories, including wildlife, in the face of unending oil and gas exploration and extraction. Bruno is a member of a northern First Nation (Deh Gah Got’ı́é Kǫ́ę́, Deh Cho Region) and a resident of Alberta. For him, this issue “carries personal resonance… especially in regards to the effects of the Athabasca Tarsands development, which is located within the MacKenzie/Peace watershed, upstream from [his] home community of Fort Providence.”
