The famous Toronto sign in Nathan Phillips Square has a new look, to recognize the rights of Indigenous language speakers across the globe.
Last month, the city unveiled Rekindle, a sign wrap to acknowledge the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO’s) International Decade of Indigenous Languages (2022 to 2032). Joseph Sagaj, the artist who designed the wrap, attended the unveiling, along with city officials, Elder Dorothy Peters, young people, and singer Zeegwon Shilling.
Selected by a community jury in May, Rekindle is intended to offer a glimpse into how languages are vital to identity, voice, and expression.
