I want to share three spoken word video poems here. The words collected and spoken are stronger than what I could write… Although I did write one of them, and speak in it. Haha.. Anyways here they are.
1. Addresses the appropriation of cultural items and traditional clothing. My favourite line is, “I’m not your fucking fashion statement.”
2. Past project that addresses the missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada. Indigenous women and girls experience violence at alarming rates, and on top of it a lack of response from the public, the police, the government.
3. Another AMAZING indigenous video project that again, addresses violence against indigenous women.
