The scars of colonial memory are written into Indigenous lands. Here poetic images offer a powerful and quiet narrative to question the viewer’s relationship to the occupied landscape, specifically in the Nlaka'pamux Nation.


Jade Baxter (Nlaka'pamux) uses both documentary and fiction in her work, focusing on the importance of Indigenous narratives, identity and representation. Her short Beyond Hope (2016) screened at last year’s imagineNATIVE.
