INHERITANCE

is a site-specific multimedia installation, inspired by a quote by historical Canadian political leader Louis Riel:

"My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back. I have nothing but my heart and I have given it long ago to my country. We must cherish our inheritance."


Residents of Dunnvile and most of Haldimand County live on the Traditional Lands of the  Haudenosaunee, Indigenous Peoples  who have inhabited, cared for and protected the land and waters. 

Haldimand County sits on the land promised to the Indigenous Peoples as part of the Haldimand Tract 1784.  


On 22 May 1784, Haldimand signed an accord with Mississauga chiefs to cede approximately 385,000 hectares (ha) of land to the Crown for £1,180. The largest portion of this went to the Haudenosaunee, who received a tract of land 10 km deep on either side of the Grand River, beginning at its source to Lake Erie. This area provided the basis of the Six Nations reserve. 


 The current Six Nations reserve covers only 50,000 acres, or approximately 5% of the original grant. Since the original 1784 Proclamation, the vast majority of the land was sold or otherwise illegally transferred to white settlers by the Crown (and subsequently the Canadian government) without the consent of the Six Nations confederacy. 


As residents of Haldimand County, and occupants of stolen land, this project aims to acknowledge the history of our community and suggest that, although we did not personally steal the land, by living here we have inherited the responsibility of protecting land and waters like the Peoples before us, working towards Reconciliation so that all people living here can enjoy and benefit from the environment for generations to come.
