Artist Profiles: Shinia Pierrard
Sixteen-year-old Miss Shania Pierrard’s design was selected among entries from across Nova Scotia. The Mi’kmaq star is the focus featuring the colours – red, black, yellow and white. This also represents the districts of the Mi’kmaq nations, the four races inhabiting earth and the four directions. The power and strength of the Mi’kmaq is symbolized by an eagle, and a man represents the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada. The focal point of her design, a beautiful dream catcher set in the forefront of the iconic eagle and man.
