Diamond Point is a contemporary Coast Salish artist and a member of the Musqueam First Nation. Diamond currently resides in Ladner, however grew up and was raised on the Musqueam Indian Reserve since birth. She describes herself as a contemporary artist because she feels that her artwork belongs within the present, with her techniques and style constantly developing and changing through out her experiences. Being a young, contemporary artist, Diamond believes it is important to continue developing her artwork as present and current. In her work, Diamond incorporates traditional Coast Salish design elements as a way to represent the beautiful teachings and history her ancestors have passed down through generations since time immemorial. In 2014, Diamond had the privilege of showcasing her work in the Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Indigenous Youth exhibition through the Museum of Anthropology, Vancouver. More recently in 2018, Diamond created designs for the new Totem Park residences at the University of British Columbia (UBC) that have been named after traditional Musqueam village sites, c̓əsnaʔəm, həm̓ləsəm̓, and q̓ələχən. This coming May 2019, Diamond’s artwork will be used as the logo for the Humanities, Arts, Science, Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) conference being held at UBC, which sits on traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. Apart from being an artist, Diamond also has a passion towards a career in education. She currently studies at UBC and is in the NITEP Indigenous Teacher Education Program in the Faculty of Education. Upon graduation, Diamond hopes to work as a secondary Socials and Art teacher. Diamond feels incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunities to express her Indigenous identity and culture within many realms. As an emerging artist, she intends to create artwork that connects the old with the new but remain respectful to traditional Coast Salish design elements.
