Land Back
Contemporary Native Art Biennial
From October 1 to December 23, 2022

Curator: Michael Patten

Since time immemorial, indigenous peoples have protected biodiversity in the face of continued human population growth. Since contact with settlers, indigenous communities have been stripped of their ancestral lands; the Land Back movement aims to restore governance and stewardship of the land for a sustainable future.

If Land Back is a call to action, a return of equity to a stolen territory, it is also an opening to some questioning. How can we best protect biodiversity, land and water? The first step would be to return the land to its traditional and legitimate protectors. Returning to indigenous knowledge goes beyond symbolic gestures of recognition or inclusion to significantly change practices and structures.
