A site-specific truth-activation on the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. A restory-ation of University of Toronto's School of Graduate Studies (SGS). For more information, visit Streaming Life: Storying the 94

This performative intervention is the first of a series of site-specific truth-activations on the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. Each intervention re-presences a seemingly neutral plot of "Terra Nullius" upon which an institutional edifice has been erected, marking it as a place where destructive power was exerted—a force that continues to reverberate through Indigenous blood, bone and memory today.

To mark the sun's autumnal passage across the equator, members of Native Performance Culture and the Rhythm of (Re) Conciliation: Remembering Ourselves in Deep Time with Sto:Loh author, educator and Knowledge Keeper Lee Maracle and the Digital Dramaturgy Labsquared activate a restory-ation of University of Toronto's School of Graduate Studies (SGS).
