Editors' Comment

On October 1, at the opening of the new southwest segment of Calgary’s ring road, Tsuut’ina artist and musician seth cardinal dodginghorse intervened in official speeches to voice protest about the road, which runs through Tsuut’ina land where he once lived; dodginghorse also cut off his braids there, with the speech and action being “the culmination of six years of grief,” as he put it later. Relationships between infrastructure, colonialism and tourism—including that very ring road, Tsuut’ina land, and dodginghorse’s research, knowledge and sound art—also converge in “Untunnelling Vision,” a must-experience project led by Jin-me Yoon that has been three years in the making and has involved dozens of participants, sites, histories and reinscriptions of Treaty 7 lands. —Leah Sandals, content editor
