Christi Belcourt is a Michif visual artist from Mânitow Sâkahikan ancestry, living in Anishinaabeg territory on the North Shore of Lake Huron, Canada. Belcourt respects the traditions & knowledge of her people, and her work often
celebrates the beauty of the natural world.
Belcourt says,
“No amount of money can buy back a people’s river. No amount of money can buy back the sea.
The Trans Mountain Pipeline cannot be built. Because we love the rivers.
Because we love the sea. Because we love this sacred earth.
We will defend our home. We will defend our water.

Everything I do in my life is my love for the earth and my awe of it. This wondrous planet, so full of
mystery, is a paradise. Everything – the plants, insects, winds, stars, rocks, animals, us – is a giant web
of pure spirit. Nothing is separate from anything else. All life, even the rocks, need to be treated with
respect. The sacred laws of this world are respect and reciprocity. When we stop following them, we as
a species are out of balance with the rest of the world.”
