Canada day is a hard day for me as an Indigenous Canadian. Canada is portrayed as a welcoming and innocent country but really Canada covers up the years of genocide and oppresion that Aboriginals and other people of colour face. It is a celebration of when Canada was formed, yet it isn’t discussed how it is land that was stolen from Natives. The purpose of my photographs are to bring awareness to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) as a way to acknowledge, honour and get justice for the women, girls and their families.
