Indigenous artists bring critical reflections on Canada’s “past” into the present. Questioning the celebration of 150 years of assimilation built upon 500 years of genocide, artists belonging to Turtle Island imagine Indigeneity in a space that includes past, present and future. Join us as we build a tipi in the Pitman Hall quad. This installation is brought to you by the Indigenous Communication and Design Network at Ryerson’s Faculty of Communication and Design.
