2024 Adult Provincial Medals

Chantelle Trainor-Matties often illustrates animals in her Indigenous work and pulls from them lessons that we can learn from in our own lives, for example, with animals like a wolf we can learn about teamwork and collaboration. The wolf has many characteristics that are important for a team to win a championship. Wolves are intelligent, strong, protective, and have swift movement, they're social animals with good communication skills, and they educate and understand one another. They are team players working towards a common goal. The word for wolf in the Nisga'a language is gibuu!  

Artist Bio: Chantelle Trainor-Matties is an artist from British Columbia, Canada with Nisga’a and Métis heritage who specializes in illustration, graphic design, painting, and mural work. She works for herself and does freelance work for private and commercial clientele through her small business Frettchan Studios.
