Indigenous Women Artists in the Age of Truth and Reconciliation

 

Innovation and creativity have always been central to the cultural expressions of Indigenous women. New ideas and materials, introduced throughout the history of settler colonialism, were used to continue important cultural practices in increasingly difficult contexts. This process remains a crucial means for critiquing, resisting, and transforming the still fraught interactions between Indigenous peoples and newcomers. A number of exceptional Indigenous women artists are utilizing diverse media to foreground Indigenous worldviews as a way to heal their own communities as well as illuminate the consequences of our entwined histories for a wider public.
