Honouring The Art and Life of Marion Cumming
“My day is better for having seen you!” —Marion Cumming
A legacy book honouring a local environmental activist and longtime supporter of Indigenous rights.
Marion was a true visionary. She believed that opening hearts and minds, and cultivating deep understanding of all cultures, was to create peace in our communities and, ultimately, the world.
This book will be a tribute to Marion Margaret Cumming, who was a remarkable artist, poet and humanist. From the time that she was a young woman, she devoted her life to being of service to those in need, and to the environment.
She was the first Canadian woman to return land to Indigenous people in what is now known as the Land Back movement.
She also worked tirelessly for years alongside the late Charles Elliott Temosen in developing a series of monuments commemorating the history and culture of the L’kwungen peoples, and their relationship with the land and sea.
By making a donation to this book you will be supporting the inspiring legacy of Marion Cumming.
A charitable tax receipt will be sent immediately.
