Turtle Island

Mural Routes Member(s): Allan Bender Completed: October 2021

Designed and painted by Allan Bender, John Nobrega, Stacey Kinder

“In various Indigenous origin stories, the turtle is said to support the world, and is an icon of life itself. Turtle Island therefore speaks to various spiritual beliefs about creation and for some, the turtle is a marker of identity, culture, autonomy and a deeply-held respect for the environment.” The Canadian Encyclopedia
