Honouring Tree Sculpture

Listen to the tour audio!
One of these trees is not like the others, one of these trees just doesn't belong. The beautiful sculpture in front of you is known as the honoring tree and was initiated by the Saskatchewan African Canadian heritage museum in 2010. As you can see, the sculpture is a towering figure topped by inside a rim. It is a symbol of life, legacy and diversity.
A Saskatchewan African Canadian heritage museum official remarked that, "Through this we remember and honor all past, our heritage and contributions as well as the good and not so good times. It gives us a sense of belonging, freedom, hope and opportunity for the future".
The Saskatchewan African Canadian heritage museum's vision is a community where all are recognized as equal in dignity, and have a contribution to make. Our differences are explored and celebrated, and barriers that impede full participation are openly named and removed.
