In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released 94 Calls to Action following a national inquiry into residential schools. Of these 94 Calls, five actioned for the creation of monuments intended to commemorate and honor residential school sites, survivors and the children who were lost. What began as an exploration into what these proposed monuments could look like from an Anishinaabe perspective, soon turned into an investigation of how monuments function within the discourse of reconciliation and decolonization. How they operate as tools of Indigenous erasure and how they can be coopted as tools to assert Indigenous presence. And finally, how monuments physically manifest online discourse and ideologies in the push for (de)colonization/(re)conciliation and the push back against it. This is an exploration of the monument as apparatus used by “very fine people on both sides.”
