Many thanks to Eiko, Silkiie, Sir Oliver, Pedro, Hayk, Gary and many others adding to the piece!

Quote of the month:
The result of being colonized is the internalization of the need to remain invisible. The colonizers erase you, not easily, but with shame and brutality. Eventually you want to stay that way. Being [an artist] is getting up there and writing yourself into everyone’s blackboard.” – Lee Maracle, Indigenous writer, traditional teacher, Sto:lo Nation
