Smudging. Round Dances. Feasting. These are just some of the traditions practiced by Canada’s Aboriginal cultures.

 

This is something that the University of Regina looks to emphasize with its recent 2015-2020 strategic plan entitled Peyak Aski Kikawinaw, or “We are one with Mother Earth”.

The Witness Blanket displayed at the University of Regina's Research and Innovation Center.

A tattered drum. A pair of worn leather skates. Behind a pane of glass, two severed ponytails arranged artfully. The Witness Blanket is a large scale art installation that collects artifacts from Canada’s residential school past, and displays them in a carved wooden frame.

Bill Whatcott’s views are – to put it lightly – controversial.

 

His views on abortion and LGBTQ rights are far beyond the mainstream. Some might even say they go beyond the pale. He’s fought the law. He’s been fined by the provincial government, gone to Canada’s Supreme Court several times, and was arrested during a demonstration at the University of Regina last year.

 

On Jan. 12, he came back to campus.
