Playing with concepts of memory keeping, these artists encode, store and retrieve knowledge of the land, language, and cultural practices. Memory Keepers III | Nujimikwite’taqatijik III is a series of site specific, 
experimental, collaborative media art installations created by eight Indigenous artists during two art incubators curated by GLAM Collective. Their artwork translates and transmits Indigenous knowledge for future generations.
