This tote bag is based off the piece of Art by Natoyihkii, that depicts a Hudson Bay Point Blanket that is covered in Blacks, Reds, Whites, and Yellows. You can also faintly make out two small handprints. This piece asks us to consider the darker history of the Hudson Bay Company, the oldest corporation in Canada. What has their company been built upon? The use of the blanket also asks us to consider the history of smallpox, the loss of the Coast Salish Wooly Dog and the resulting genocide that occurred during the fur trade in what is now known as Canada.
