The Land We Are
Artists and Writers Unsettle the Politics of Reconciliation
edited by Gabrielle L’Hirondelle Hill & Sophie McCall

Paperback $24.95 | June 2015

The Land We Are is a stunning collection of writing and art that interrogates the current era of reconciliation in Canada. Using visual, poetic, and theoretical language, the contributors approach reconciliation as a problematic narrative about Indigenous-settler relations, but also as a site where conversations about a just future must occur. The result of a four-year collaboration between artists and scholars engaged in resurgence and decolonization, The Land We Are is a moving dialogue that blurs the boundaries between activism, research, and the arts.

Gabrielle L’Hirondelle Hill is a Métis artist from Vancouver, BC, who works in drawing, sculpture, and public installation. Her work has been exhibited at Sunset Terrace, Gallery Gachet, Grunt Gallery, and Red Gate in Vancouver, BC; at the TRU Gallery in Kamloops, BC; and also at Get This! Gallery in Atlanta, GA. Gabrielle holds a BA with honors in English from Simon Fraser University (SFU) and a BFA in Visual Arts, also from SFU.

Over the past four years, she has worked in a collaborative research group investigating the relationship between art and reconciliation, and was the Principal Investigator for a SSHRCC Public Outreach Grant, Reconciliation: Work(s) in Progress—An Innovation Forum, in 2012–13.
