Inuksuk garden in Montreal

These eye-catching, brightly-coloured inuksuit are among seven which now stand in a unique garden – the work of a group of mentally and physically disabled students in Montreal.
About 50 students ranging 4 to 21 years, with significant developmental delays and moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, attend REACH, a school located in the south shore suburb of Saint Lambert.

The original project was to create two large inuksuks that would be made of cement and stone and be decorated with mosaic art, but, with the help of mosaicist Tatiana Iliina Gooden, the students ended up building smaller-sized inuksuks, up to one metre high.

At the recent dedication ceremony for the school’s inuksuit garden, students also sang the Inuktitut syllabic alphabet song.
