It is no ques­tion that art holds pow­er­ful impli­ca­tions for how we view our sur­round­ings, oth­ers and our­selves. In 2019 com­mu­ni­ties of Indige­nous artists are com­ing to the cul­tur­al fore­front to dis­pel mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tions of Indige­nous peo­ple as well as cen­ter­ing and cel­e­brat­ing indige­nous resilience, sov­er­eign­ty and cultures.

Ter­ra Inform­ers spoke with Cree, Métis and Nor­we­gian pho­tog­ra­ph­er, Maris­sa Mag­ne­son at the 2019 Con­gress of the Human­i­ties and Social Sci­ences that took place in June. Mag­ne­son pre­sent­ed a talk titled Re-Fram­ing His­to­ry: Flip­ping Artis­tic Per­spec­tive of Indige­nous Iden­ti­ty” which explores how art is used to shape and reshape our under­stand­ing of peo­ple, his­to­ry, and places.

Through­out the inter­view Ter­ra Informer, Shawn Hou, presents head­lines that demon­strate the ties that art has to iden­ti­ty as well as the cli­mate crisis.
