October 18, 2015 DAVID GARNEAU The Land We Are: Artists and Writers Unsettle the Politics of Reconciliation
The Land We Are is a stunning collection of writing and art that interrogates the current era of reconciliation in Canada. Using visual, poetic, and theoretical language, the contributors approach reconciliation as a problematic narrative about Indigenous-settler relations, but also as a site where conversations about a just future must occur. The result of a four-year collaboration between artists and scholars engaged in resurgence and decolonization, The Land We Are is a moving dialogue that blurs the boundaries between activism, research, and the arts.
Editors: Gabrielle L’Hirondelle Hill & Sophie McCall.
