Cora-Rae Silk and Laurie McGauley
My Home? My Territory?, My Treaty?
Cora is from Thunder Bay, a member of Animakee Wa Zhing First Nation in Treaty 3 territory. Cora conceived the idea of “home” as a way to approach the contentious realities of treaty rights. Cora is currently the Lead Artist with Myths and Mirrors Community Arts.
Laurie is the founder of Myths and Mirrors and is back as Artistic Director after an 8 year hiatus. She is originally from Sudbury, on Atikameksheng Anishnabek land, Robinson Huron Treaty territory. Her current focus is on the truth of settler colonialism in Northern Ontario.
For over 23 years, Myths and Mirrors Community Arts has been engaging Sudburians in collaborative, contentious and crucial dialogue and creation.
