Land Acknowledgement

Declaration & Statement

 

"Growing up in 'Huron County' ... where a lot of my work is based this most recent ongoing project is an opportunity to acknowledge, learn to understand and better appreciate the land that my family 'works' is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Neutral peoples.

I recognise Indigenous communities continue stewardship of the land and water, and that the territory I call 'home' was subject to which multiple nations agreed to care for the land and resources by the Great Lakes in peace.

In conversations and in written and practice-based work, the project aims to acknowledge and recognise the Upper Canada Treaties in regards to this land, which include Treaty #29 and Treaty #45 1/2, and the role as treaty people committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation, gratitude, and respect with all First Nation, Métis and Inuit people for the land.

i miss the land but does the land miss me?

A series of photographs and 'performances to camera' to investigate and play to 'the weight of things', notions of longing, and the body in the landscape.
