The Witness Blanket displayed at the University of Regina's Research and Innovation Center.

A tattered drum. A pair of worn leather skates. Behind a pane of glass, two severed ponytails arranged artfully. The Witness Blanket is a large scale art installation that collects artifacts from Canada’s residential school past, and displays them in a carved wooden frame.
