In terms of law and policy, the balance of competing public interests (colonizer versus Indigenous) regarding the perception of land and the management of its resources has been one of the defining challenges of the past 500 years in Canada and the rest of the Western Hemisphere. Repellent Eye (Winnipeg) memorializes this history, while at the same time holds the present accountable, and provides a vision for repelling future devastating expressions of this logical framework as a means of achieving a more respectful and sustainable balance of land, culture and community.
