I am a Métis artist, and my work explores what it means to be an Indigenous person in this time and place. This piece is from my counter-mapping series. Counter-mapping is a form of map-making or charting of stories/culture that consists of making marks of resistance on top of a western representation of space and time. In this case, an economic resources map of Canada from the 1947 Dent's Canadian School Atlas. It is a challenge against political ideas of geography, borders, boundaries, possession, economic, social, and cultural relations on the land.
