Abstract (English)

According to the artist, her photo-based installation derived from a three-year involvement with the Teme-Augama Anishnabai Bear Island Band, uses the premise of authority as it extends into power relations and "gamesmanship-like" strategies. Moray describes possible reactions to the installation in the context of contemporary photographic practice, Canadian landscape imagery, Native culture within Canadian society, colonization and representation, stereotyping, voice appropriation, self-determination and power, feminism and cultural pluralism. The history, heritage and current position of the Teme-Augama Anishnabai are stated by Laronde and Kilgour. Biographical notes. 13 bibl. ref.
