A montage of text, found images, and narrative taken from a discarded social science textbook entitled The People We Are: Canada’s Multicultural Society (Gage, 1980), Taking a page... questions the Canadian immigrant paradigm by offering up a historiographical lesson on notions of belongingness. By “taking a page” from a discarded social science textbook entitled The People We Are: Canada’s Multicultural Society (Gage, 1980), the artist collective begins a process of re-imagining immigrant-settlers’ positionality by framing education as a primary tool of colonial story-telling.
