In the spring of 1885, after years of growing tensions between the Canadian government and the spurned M tis, an armed resistance broke out that left dozens dead and wounded and generations of Indigenous peoples subjugated to Canadian rule.

In a hypnotic retelling of this North-West Resistance, acclaimed poet Walter Hildebrandt breaches the divide between Imperialist narrative, Indigenous orality, and Continental philosophy to disrupt this heavily-charged period of Canadian history. With resounding precision, Rupture: North-West 1885 opens the fissure between long-held Indigenous doctrines and the fates handed to those who dared to demand fair representation, ushering in a more just vision of the past and future.
