White Wash

There are more children in care now than at the height of the residential schools operations.

By dripping the white from the flag onto the boy CHIPPEWAR represents the white washing of Indigenous children and ongoing child apprehension.

The breakdown of the Canadian flag is CHIPPEWAR’s response to broken treaties, empty words, band-aid solutions, worthless promises, and the tarnished relationship that the Canadian Government has with Indigenous peoples here on Turtle Island. Every day we hear of continued atrocities impacting Indigenous people, with no concrete actions taken by the government to repair what they have done and continue to do.

The United Nations defines this as GENOCIDE.
