Mi’kmaq visual artist Jordan Bennett created the mural Ktaqmkuk - Msit No’kmaq as part of the 2018 Identity: A Celebration of Indigenous Arts and Culture festival organized by Eastern Edge Gallery, an artist-run centre. The mural project is an example of a collaborative partnership involving Eastern Edge Gallery, the City of St. John’s and The Paint Shop.

Located in a small green space at the corner of King's Road and Queen's Road, known as Rawlins Cross, Bennett’s mural features symbols and images drawn from Mi’kmaq and Beothuk culture.
