The GMC Art Collection

the Talking StickWe value our art at the GMC in terms of its role as a therapy and helping to connect with the broader community. We have a collection from many local artists including some works by Bundjalung people.

Our most recent addition is a print from a well known First Nation Canadian artist, Todd Baker. This work was given to us by our two Canadian medical students, Hasti Gouldooz and Amrita Samra. They have now just completed their one year training with us.

We enjoyed having these students and wish them well for their future. The artwork is called ‘The Talking Stick.’

The stick was held by the speaker, who stood beside the chief at ceremonies and announced the chief’s wishes. The talking stick was the property of the chief and was intricately carved with his crests and family stories much like a miniature totem pole. Today at gatherings it is the turn of whoever is holding the talking stick to speak.

One of Canada’s foremost First Nation artists, Todd is the grandson of the (late) great leader and speaker Chief Khot-la-cha (Chief Simon Baker) of the Squamish Nation a Coast Salish tribe. The Squamish Nation is located in the beautiful city of Vancouver where our students come from.
