The Drawings and Paintings of Daphne Odjig, Bonnie Devine (Author), Duke Redbird (Author), Robert Houle (Author)
1 Bonnie Devine (Author), Duke Redbird (Author), Robert Houle (Author) The Drawings and Paintings of Daphne Odjig
0888848404 / 9780888848406 softcover as new 
The discovery, in the 1950s, of the ancient iconography of the Algonkian people was a lightning rod for the collective Aboriginal conscience in Canada. When Daphne Odjig and Norval Morrisseau began to produce paintings in the 1960s depicting the Algonkian legends they were heralded as the heirs of that ancient lineage. As Morrisseau pursued his characteristic iconic style, Odjig developed a varied and experimental graphic and narrative practice. Comparisons have been drawn between her work and cubism, surrealism and abstract-expressionism. Yet, while her aesthetic investigations place her outside any one stylistic genre, her themes and imagery remain distinctly Aboriginal. The drawings and paintings presented here represent forty-four years of Daphne Odjig's artistic production and include examples of her legend paintings, history murals, erotica, abstractions and landscapes. As a group, these works articulate the breadth of Odjig's visual engagement with her personal and cultural history. As a linear narrative, they trace the remarkable development of the artist from initial experimentation to mature mastery of her media. Daphne Odjig has exhibited worldwide and is a 2007 recipient of the Governor General's Award in Visual Arts, the country's highest honour.

Aborigines' Protection Society: Humanitarian Imperialism in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada, South Africa, and the Congo, 1836-1909, Heartfield, James
5 Heartfield, James Aborigines' Protection Society: Humanitarian Imperialism in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada, South Africa, and the Congo, 1836-1909
0199327408 / 9780199327409 
For more than seventy years, the Aborigines' Protection Society, a select group of the great and the good, fought for the natives of the British Empire and against the tide of white supremacy to defend the interests of aboriginal peoples everywhere. Active on four continents, the Society brought the Zulu King Cetshwayo to meet Queen Victoria, and Maori rebels to the Lord Mayor's banqueting hall. The Society's supporters were denounced by senior British Army officers and white settlers as Zulu-lovers, 'so-called friends of the Aborigines', and even traitors. The book tells the story of the three-cornered fight among the Colonial Office, the settlers and the natives that shaped the Empire and the pivotal role that the Society played, persuading the authorities to limit settlers' claims in the name of native interests. Against expectations, the policy of native protection turned out to be one of the most important reasons for the growth of Imperial rule. James Heartfield's comparative study of native protection policies in Southern Africa, the Congo, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, and Canada explains how those who held the best of intentions ended up unwittingly championing further colonisation. Pointing to the wreckage of humanitarian imperialism today, Heartfield sets out to understand its roots in the beliefs and practices of its nineteenth-century equivalents.

From the Heart: How 100 Canadians Created an Unconventional Theatre Performance about Reconciliation, Will Weigler
14 Will Weigler From the Heart: How 100 Canadians Created an Unconventional Theatre Performance about Reconciliation
2015 0921783604 / 9780921783602 softcover new 
new This fully illustrated, narrative-based guidebook describes an unconventional theatre production that took place in Victoria, BC in 2013. A culturally diverse, inter-generational group of 100 primarily non-Indigenous men and women collaborated with professional theatre artists to create and perform a play designed as a journey through a 14,000 sq. ft. indoor labyrinth. The project was intended as an arts-based approach to promote public dialogue about settler Canadians' relationship with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities; to stand as allies with Indigenous people; and to take some measure of responsibility for contributing to reconciliation in this country. The book details the original vision for the project (including examination of the question "what does 'decolonization' mean?"), and tells the story of the script creation process and performances, with explanations of the philosophical and ethical foundations behind the choices that were made. It is intended for general readers and students with an interest in reconciliation and arts-based community development, as well as civic leaders who can use this book as a model for how to create their own unique theatre production based on the pilot projec
