#Resistance150: Christi Belcourt on Indigenous history, resilience and resurgence

The #Resistance150 project is a reaction to Canada 150 and part of a continuum of Indigenous resistance in Canada.

"It's a project highlighting the resistance that already exists and that will continue to go on."

Michif artist Belcourt is one of the four Indigenous people who launched the #Resistance150 project — a reaction to #Canada150 and part of a continuum of resistance in Canada. Belcourt is seen here in front of one of her large scale but intricate 'beadwork' paintings. (Christi Belcourt/Facebook )
