加拿大與臺灣的原住民族有著類似的歷史經驗及文化認同情結,都曾經面臨外來政權統治,導致在原本居住的土地流離失所,語言、文化皆遭受打擊且瀕臨消亡。現在所面臨的生存議題與和解的轉型正義,其途徑或許曲折,但目標一致。雙邊的原住民族皆堅定的走在爭取權益的道路上,不斷與政府、社會持續溝通,期盼有更多人一起走向族群和解、共榮共存的未來。

本展從雙方國家的傷口出發,這個傷口不是一開始外來族群侵略的傷口,而是在族群融合及外族統治之下的社會地位、環境政策影響「教化」而產生的,這個教化不只是對原住民族本身,也塑形其他族群對原住民的既定觀點。被安靜切割的傷口,隱藏在真實底下。這些事件,掀開歷史情結之下的壓抑,使原住民族的權益被正視,後續的和解以及原住民族在回返自身文化、傳統的認同上,發展至我們所關注的四個面向及議題:生存環境、身份認同、女性文化、祖靈精神。

當代的原住民族開始重新思考及邁進,不只是還原過去或把殘缺的片段縫補填滿,更是突破現狀追求進化,許多文化尋根、傳統復甦等,不同面向的議題交織成相互影響的維度,正向及反向作用力連橫錯縱,重新建構密不可分的網狀文化觀。這正是當代原住民族及相關人士正在進行的努力。抵抗是為了文化的生存,爭取的是打破既有層級、時間、邊界、位置、結構,藉由躍升、更新、拓展、重建的方法來提供解決問題的可能性。

Indigenous Peoples in what is now Canada and Indigenous Peoples in Taiwan share common interests with regard to Indigenous issues and boast strong peoples-to-people connections between and amongst Indigenous groups. . Assimilationist policies and practices have led to the denial of Indigenous rights in the past, including cultural and language disappearance, which are now being revived, reclaimed, and revitalized by Indigenous Peoples. Today, they endeavor in the issue of survival and the matter of transitional justice for reconciliation. Even though this journey might be intricately complicated, their share the same ultimate goal. Today, Canadian and Taiwanese Indigenous Peoples have striven steadfastly for their rights, and have consistently engaged the governments and societies in communication, hoping that more and more people could work together towards a future of ethnic reconciliation as well as co-prosperity and co-existence.

This exhibition starts from the wounds of various nations of Indigenous Peoples – the wounds do not refer to foreign regimes , but what has been “enculturated” through influences of social status and environmental policy throughout the histories of ethnic integration and foreign culture. Such enculturation has not only targeted Indigenous communities, but has also shaped other communities’ viewpoints of Indigenous Peoples. The wounds incised are concealed silently under the surface. Uncovering these incidents, along with the suppression buried in the underlying historical realities, allows us to squarely face the problems involving the rights of Indigenous Peoples. By doing this, reconciliation becomes possible, and we are able to move towards assisting Indigenous Peoples to revitalize their culture and traditional identities, while engaging in the development of four noteworthy facets and topics: “Survival Environment,” “Indigenous Identity,” “Women’s Culture,” and “Ancestral Spirit.”

Contemporary Indigenous communities restart thinking and marching forward , which refers not simply to restoring the historical past or mending missing cultural pieces. Instead, it seeks breakthroughs and improvements to the status quo, using approaches such as finding cultural roots, revitalizing traditions, etc., all of which lead to the possibility of a dimension in which various issues become interwoven and interconnected, while numerous forces and counterforces crisscross and re-construct an intricately networked cultural perspective. This is the objective for which contemporary Indigenous communities are striving for today. In short, their resistance seeks to ensure the survival of their culture; and what they are endeavoring to achieve is the shattering of existing hierarchies, temporalities, boundaries, positions, and power structures in order to usher in possible solutions through means of elevation, renewal, expansion, and reconstruction.
