This chapter discusses the project of Trading Routes, an art/research project seeking to engage with the contested geographies in Northern British Colombia, Alberta, and relations of Indigenous and non Indigenous ways of knowing. It emphasizes the need for the ontological differences between Indigenous and non Indigenous/Western maps. The chapter calls attention to new coalitions — among artists, academics, and community leaders — that are respectful of land-based knowledge systems. Differences between colonial and Indigenous mapping and ways of knowing fissure the singular map Canada. Coming to terms with these differences is crucial to developing a more nuanced understanding of the spatial dynamics underwriting a colonial will to power as well as the means of resisting that will.
