Jaime Black-Morsette is a multidisciplinary artist of Anishinaabe, Métis and European descent. Black’s art practice engages themes of memory, identity, place and resistance and is grounded in an understanding of the body and the land as sources of cultural and spiritual knowledge. Through her art she works to inspire dialogue around social and political events and issues, and to create space for reflection. She is particularly interested in feminism and Indigenous social justice, and the possibilities for articulating linkages between and around both. Her REDress Project, confronting the scourge of violence against Indigenous women and girls, has been featured in venues across Canada and the United States, including at the National Museum of the American Indian/Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C.
