Summary What is this place that Canadians call the reserve, Americans call the reservation, and many call "the rez"? For most contemporary aboriginal people, this negotiated space is, was, or will be home. In Reservation X, seven artists and four writers explore the rich connections among person, society, and place. Gerald McMaster, Nancy Marie Mithlo, Paul Chaat Smith, and Charlotte Townsend-Gault contribute essays on community and identity that range from art theory to pop culture, from historical analysis to anecdote; they also contribute profiles of the artists. Harry Foster provides photographs of the artists installations, and the artists themselves comment on their lives, their art, and their communities.
