In November 2020, the Friends of Fundy invited artist, Emma Hassencahl- Perley to come to the Village of Alma and Fundy National Park. This would be her first time experiencing this beautiful place. This mini documentary showcases Hassencahl-Perley’s visit to Fundy, her process of painting large scale murals, and conversations around the Indian Act and the term ‘legislative identity’.
“It was an honour of mine to work with the Friends of Fundy and go to Fundy National Park to create a work that was directly inspired by the land and water on ancestral territory of the Wolastoqiyik, Peskotomukati, and Penobscot, as I am told. It was my first visit and I feel more connection to this meeting area within my ancestral homeland than I had before.” – Emma Hassencahl-Perley
