People often say ‘stop being angry and educate us’, not understanding that the anger is part of the education.
And note that folks dont ever take the time to educate themselves. A 2 second Google search would solve problems but folks would rather whinge about how mean the marginalized group is being to them…
The Shirt by Shelley Niro, 2003.
Niro’s work consists of a connecting series of photographs that should be read together as a whole narrative. The images are set in a pastoral landscape, and each subsequent photograph offers an increasingly incisive statement on the colonization of the land that once belonged to aboriginal peoples.
Shelly Niro was born in Niagara Falls, NY in 1954. She is a member of the Mohawk Nation, Iroquois Confederacy, Turtle Clan, Six Nations Reserve. She is currently based in Brantford, Ontario, and works in a variety of media, including beadwork, painting, photography, and film. (via virtual museum)
