Handmade Woven Tapestry - “Holding Sight”
i love nazar charms, and although i still don’t have a working definition of what the “evil eye” is, i think you should probably protect yourself from it just to be safe.

Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance (1993)

On a July day in 1990, a confrontation propelled Native issues in Kanehsatake and the village of Oka, Quebec, into the international spotlight. Director Alanis Obomsawin spent 78 nerve-wracking days and nights filming the armed stand-off between the Mohawks, the Quebec police and the Canadian army. This powerful documentary takes you right into the action of an age-old Aboriginal struggle. The result is a portrait of the people behind the barricades.

This documentary is important to watch, moving and terribly upsetting. I am left questioning how much has improved in Canada for Aboriginal groups in 25 years. Postcolonialism seems like the wrong word, when the after-effects of the colonization of Canada continue to repeat themselves over and over again.
