No present without the past. No equality without feminism.

Nekt wikuhpon ehpit chronicles the sources, inspiration, and personal circumstances that have shaped Shirley Bear’s visual art, poetry, and political activism and presents the integral relationship amongst these important activities in her life.

Countering the invisible silent status ascribed to Indigenous women by patriarchal history and convention, Bear’s primary focus has been the recovery of the feminine role in the ancestral life of First Nations culture. Featuring more than 30 reproductions of her work with essays by Terry Graff, Susan Crean, and Carol Taylor, Nekt wikuhpon ehpit both depicts and examines the essential feminine imagery of Bear’s work in their symbolic, archetypal, or representative forms.

Shirley Bear’s work has been featured in exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe. Her writing has been featured in several anthologies, including Kelusultiek: Original Women’s Voices of Atlantic Canada and The Colour of Resistance. She received the New Brunswick Excellence in the Arts Award in 2002.

Pas de présent sans le passé. Pas d'égalité sans féminisme.

Nekt wikuhpon ehpit rassemble les sources, l'inspiration et les circonstances personnelles qui ont façonné l'art visuel, la poésie et l'activisme politique de Shirley Bear et les présente la relation intégrale entre ces activités importantes dans sa vie.

Contre le statut de silence invisible attribué aux femmes autochtones par l’histoire et les conventions patriarcales, Bear se concentre principalement sur le rétablissement du rôle féminin dans la vie ancestrale de la culture des Premières Nations. Avec plus de 30 reproductions de son travail avec des essais de Terry Graff, Susan Crean et Carol Taylor, Nekt wikuhpon ehpit dépeint l'imagerie féminine essentielle du travail de Bear sous leurs formes symboliques, archétypales ou représentatives.

Le travail de Shirley Bear a été présenté dans des expositions au Canada, aux États-Unis et en Europe. Ses écrits ont été présentés dans plusieurs anthologies, notamment Kelusultiek: Original Women’s Voices of Atlantic Canada et The Color of Resistance. Elle a reçu le Prix d'excellence dans les arts du Nouveau-Brunswick en 2002.
