Our first billboard! In honor of our founders and urban Indigenous grassroots organizers, Corrina Gould (Lisjan Ohlone) and Johnella LaRose (Shoshone Bannock), work to Rematriate the Land!
The 50 foot long piece shows the ghost of a city behind the new growth of plants overtaking it as two Indigenous women with long braids down their backs look onwards, envisioning another future against the bright ombre of sunrise.
Designed by Inés Ixierda with Corrina Gould as part of the LandBack Art Campaign, this is one of 20 billboards by Indigenous artists and their allies across the United States. LandBack Art is connecting artists, activists, and allies working to dismantle and defund systems of colonial violence, invest in Indigenous communities, and return land to Indigenous hands. Powered by NDN Collective, For Freedoms, and Indígena. It was showing on University Avenue near San Pablo in so called Berkeley for almost six months.
