O:se Kenhionhata:tie LandBack Camp:

Shawn Johnston

"Land Back Camp: Our Voices" is a series of photos that spotlights the Indigenous people and settlers of O:se Kenhionhata:tie, also known as Land Back Camp. The camp began in late June 2020 with only a teepee and two tents beside a playground in Kitchener’s Victoria Park, and later moved to Waterloo Park in Waterloo in October 2020. Its original intent was to temporarily “occupy” a space in the park – an area which had for centuries been a gathering place for Chonnonton, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Huron Nations under the Dish With One Spoon Wampum, but for which we now were forced to seek permits and permission to gather on"

Mik'maw Fisheries 

"Wela’lioq to all of our non-Indigenous brothers and sisters who see us and understand we are simply trying to fulfill our right to a moderate livelihood with our fishery – Our efforts in Saulnierville are only to define that for others – we know what a moderate livelihood is for our community and we hold environmental stewardship in our hearts always – we look forward to a time of equality, peace and friendship for all"
