Re: “New Art 2017: Raven Davis leads the tough conversations

I think that the decelebration of canada is definitely an an attempt to influence and change how the future of this country looks; clearly the artist is interested in a future where we are working towards decolonizing the way we think of ourselves and the land we live on.

For the record: Indigenous people have been "held hostage" for hundreds of years of colonial occupation. The reason Canada isn't going anywhere is because people don't want it to.

For the record: regardless of what ever budget exists for Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, clearly it is this artist's opinion that more needs to be done on the path to reconciliation. They think reconciliation is more important than a party celebrating a confederation they consider an act of oppression.

For the record: colonization is not an historical act, it is a present one. The corner you are inviting them to sulk in, and the territory on which you plan to host your party are Indigenous land.

Please don't dismiss these concerns. Please work toward a better future for us all by actually listening to what Indigenous people are saying.
