BIO

Monkman (1965) is an interdisciplinary visual artist and Fisher River Cree Nation member in Treaty 5 Territory (Manitoba). He lives and works in New York City and Toronto. Known for his thought-provoking interventions into Western European and American art history, he explores themes of colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience, as well as the complexities of Indigenous experiences, through painting, film, video, performance, and installation. His gender-fluid alter ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, reverses the colonial gaze to challenge received notions of history and Indigenous peoples.

Movie in color

Shot in uber-glam shampoo-commercial style, Mary features the gorgeous, otherworldly Miss Chief Eagle Testickle in this irreverent reinterpretation of the Prince of Wales’s visit to Montreal in 1860 that challenges the meaning of “surrender” within Aboriginal treaties.
