“Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience” by Kent Monkman

 

This exhibit will change the way you look at Canada’s 150-year celebrations this year. I highly recommend it!

I found it deeply moving, smart & timely.

“There’s a Canadian myth about itself that doesn’t include what happened to indigenous people, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has shone a lot of light on that. And now I think Canadians are learning what was behind this policy of removing children from communities. What has that meant? That has meant generations of trauma that we’re still recovering from.” ~ Kent Monkman at the Gallery exhibit in Toronto, as quoted in NOW magazine.
