Resurgence of the Ancestors

I grew up next to a residential school. From a young age, I believed (and experienced) the land to be haunted. It was not until I went away to university that I learnt of the history. As an adult seeking to use my art to make a positive difference, I felt called to take photo’s of a indigenous resurgence music festival that has taken place on the same land as the residential school. These images attempt to convey the intense and powerful magic that I felt watching the traditional dancers perform their healing ceremonies.
