Description

In the spring of 1885, after years of growing tensions between the newly-appointed Canadian government and the spurned Métis, along with their First Nations allies, an armed resistance broke out that left hundreds dead and generations of Indigenous peoples subjugated to Canadian rule. In a hypnotic retelling of this North-West Resistance, acclaimed poet Walter Hildebrandt breaches the divide between Imperialist narrative, Indigenous orality, and Continental philosophy to disrupt this heavily-charged period of Canadian history. With resounding precision, Rupture opens the fissure between long-held Indigenous doctrines and the fates handed to those who dared to demand fair representation, ushering in a more just vision of the past and future.
