Discussion

Multidisciplinary artist Lindsay Katsitsakatste Delaronde, originally from Kahnawake, focuses her work around artistic practices and social issues related to the reclamation of stewardship to Indigenous land, water and Indigenous presence. Although she is based on the Pacific coast, the St. Lawrence River regularly calls her back to Tiohti:ake. Sharing an open, grateful and expansive spirit with humans and non-humans alike, she mediates a conversation with members of her Kanien’kehá:ka community on the impacts of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
