Description

'Our Home and Native Land’

Growing up in Northern British Columbia, I have always been fascinated with the intricate art designs and style of the Northwest Coast First Nations, and as a non-Indigenous person it took much research and practice to create the original painting. Although the ‘map’ layout and design of the painting were inspired by my own background in Geography (each province embodies its provincial or territorial animal ‘symbol’), the art technique itself is simply a representation of the Northwest Coast Art Style which is utilized by several First Nations in British Columbia (including, but not limited to, the Haida, Tsimshian, and Tlingit First Nations), all of which I find to be extraordinary.

‘Our Home and Native Land’ was created for a First Nations Art class in which we were given the topic of ‘Synchronous Dichotomous;’ and, like any form of art, this piece can offer any number of interpretations. However, my intention was this: This ‘map’ of Canada illustrates the synchronous, intricately connected relationship that First Nations People have with their land. Simultaneously, it demonstrates the dichotomy that First Nations’ were (and still are) faced with as the imposition of borders separated them from their land. Canada is home to everyone who is fortunate enough to live here and if we have the courage to listen to our national anthem with a slightly altered perspective we may just learn where our ‘Native’ land actually came from.
