As a reminder to everyone as we move into Indigenous People's Month....there is no pride in genocide and remember that as you celebrate our cultures.
To date there have been no Truth and Reconciliation calls to action implemented in my opinion by the government. It doesn't matter which party is in power, until we start defunding police and government as well as big business that exploits land well we will always have Genocide in this country.
Send a statement this month with our new crop top and fitted skirt based off our 2016 painting entitled A Colonial Business History. More about this painting below:
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.
