“Winnipeg based artist Leah Decter uses the Hudson’s Bay Blankets to show her distrust with Stephen Harper’s politically violent views. After recently apologizing for residential schools, Harper said that Canada didn’t have a history of colonialism.
People were asked to respond to this statement, and what it means to them. At sewing events people selected statements from the book, and stitch them onto the blanket. The artist herself is not native, but works closely with her settler position and with indigenous and native groups in constant critique.”
