Canadian Race Relations Foundation Beyond Unceded Territories New

Beyond Unceded Territories dives deeply into the perspective of artist and activist Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun. Yuxweluptun is one of Canada's most outspoken and influential contemporary artists. He is of Cowichan and Okanagan First Nations decent. His work is highly political and confronts issues of colonization, climate change and oppression head-on. He recently collaborated on a virtual reality film, Unceded Territories, with director Paisley Smith, making issues of climate change tangible for audiences when they unknowingly embody the suited, evil 'Super Predator,' often depicted in his work. In Beyond Unceded Territories, Yuxweluptun shares his feelings honestly against a backdrop of climate and pipeline protests. Yuxweluptun uses his art as a tool to effect change – and change is coming.
