The Canadian Library
Over the past year we have all been emotionally affected by the discovery of the remains of so many children on the grounds of residential schools. These events have shone a light on the atrocities, seen by the global community, that have been carried across Canada by those in power. We have also become more acutely aware of the sheer numbers of the missing and murdered Indigenous women and children. What shocks and upsets us is the lack of support by different levels of government, authorities and the justice system to help locate these beautiful women or hold the perpetrators accountable, compared to that of non-Indigenous women and children.
The Canadian Library is an art installation project that we have created to help educate, create awareness, advocate and start important conversations around this important issues. Our hope is to help towards true reconciliation.
