The Land We Are : Artists & Writers Unsettle The Politics Of Reconciliation
Xwi7xwa Library, University of British Columbia

McCall, Sophie, Hill, Gabrielle L'Hirondelle
"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." -- Back cover.
