Wreck Beach is the sunset spot beside my university, the University of British Columbia, and Totem Park is the name of the student residence my friends and I partied at in undergrad.”

WRECK BEACH/TOTEM PARK is about living my whole life beside the Musqueam reserve, never being taught nor thinking to ask why they live quietly in a small corner of a land that used to be all theirs. In the last five to ten years, like most people, I started hearing a lot of voices about our country’s history from an Indigenous point of view. 

The clear unfairness of it all really pulled back the curtain on the glossed-over, white-lie version we were given in Grade 10 social studies class.
