What is Woodland Art?

Woodland Art is a distinct style of native art that sees beyond the exterior of the subject(s) and depicts the spirit through an internal view. Popularized in the late 1960’s by Norval Morrisseau, an inspirational Ojibway artist from Northern Ontario, the style often depicts stories and/or symbols from Native North American beliefs. Woodland Art subjects typically include things like people, plants, animals, spirit, and strong symbolism, blending them with bold distinct shapes, strong lines and colours.

What is Acknowledgement?

Land acknowledgement is simply a public statement made acknowledging traditional First Nations, Métis and/or Inuit people who have lived in, and still do live in a territory. Land acknowledgement is often done through a verbal statement at the start of gatherings and in many cases more a more permanent and prominent statement is made through public displays and installations of artwork from artists like Hunter, and Hunter himself. 

Launched in 2008, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) was part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA). Intended to help guide Canadians through the discovery of the facts behind the residential school system, the Commission was also put in place to help lay the foundation for a real, lasting reconciliation across Canada.

As part of this ongoing reconciliation a territorial or land acknowledgement, involves an organization making a statement recognizing the former territory of the Indigenous people(s) who called the land home before the arrival of the settlers, and who in many cases still do call it home.

Why is Acknowledgement Important?

Land Acknowledgement is important because it is a necessary first step toward honouring the original occupants of a place. It serves in favour of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), helping make the Native North American population more visible.
