I’ve been following this guy’s work for years, first through Facebook and now in print. Really amazing stuff and very important work contextualizing indigenous life through the lens of the indigenous eye. Text article with audio here of him talking to Canada’s erudite and beloved book mom, Shelagh Rogers.
After Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission report was released, Willow Cree writer, cultural activist and journalist Paul Seesequasis felt compelled to do something to contribute and understand what his mother, a residential school survivor, went through.
He began to collect and share never-before-published photos of Indigenous communities across North America, and learned the stories of those photographed. Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun shares some of the most compelling images and stories from this project.
