Created by the Kinship Rising Collective, the Fearless Sisters Rising mural honours the fearless, healing medicine of Indigenous bodies and land relations. Completed in 2018, Fearless Sisters Rising was collectively envisioned and painted over several months by a group of BIPOC young people, students and mentors. The design and project were conceptualized by lead artists Brianna Bear and Nicole Neidhardt. Visit UVic to view this remarkable piece--the mural is located in the main staircase of McPherson Library between the third and fourth floors.
