I am worried about how to make the dress activity work. We went to visit Philip at his home. We met his wife, and daughter and grandchildren, a beautiful family. I am amazed by how close they are, how everything flows. Willma, his wife is a designer and dressmaker, her bead work comes from her own mother, I explain to her what our project is about, that I want to bridge immigrants with first nations, so we can all strengthen Idle No More, save the land, stop the tar sands…. Inspire people to engage in a different relationship with the land. I tell her that the dress is about creating culture, making a visual example of who we are. We are not what politicians claim we are. Canada is not a nation, it is a creation. “Why should I care?” I don’t know what to answer. She is right.
