Overheard at Mural Unveiling, June 21, 2005 Aboriginal Day:

"Buffalo were responsible for helping us to live a good life. One of the seven great teachers."

"The sacred pipe, symbolizing the great gift of respect. Respect for our elders and families in the shaping and development of our life, our spirit and what guides us."

"To all of our family- we strive to do the work we were given to do and continue to know how important it is to honour the first peoples of this land that we call Turtle Island. Part of this Mural honours that turtle."

"Peaceful co-existence This Mural also celebrates the many contributions the aboriginal peoples have made as partners towards the furthering of this nation. It also pauses to celebrate the vibrancy of their culture and significance of aboriginal first nations peoples today."

"Many of the people who work in this building were also involved and partially responsible for the work behind and providing input for the design of this Mural."
