The sculpture is more than 16-feet in length and features 3 mythical fishers: Makwa-Kwe (Bear), Nigig-Kwe (Otter), and Migizi-Kwe (Eagle).
On the south dock wall, the sculpture overlooks the West Gap between the island and the mainland welcoming visitors and residents. The granite and bronze sculpture recognizes #MCFN and their relationship to the land, air, and water on which Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport now operates.
Through art, we can build greater understanding and inspire dialogue, as we reflect on our past and the path we must walk together towards reconciliation.
We acknowledge the land that the community of Spadina-Fort York and which the Office of Kevin Vuong, M.P. operates on has for thousands of years been the traditional territory of many Nations, including the Chippewa, the Anishnabeg, the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Mississaugas of the Credit, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Our Office acknowledges that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
