Miss Chief's Praying Hands

Kent Monkman

2019, 00:45 minutes, colour, English with English subtitles


The colonial project on Turtle Island has forced the “gift” of European religion, education, sickness, shame, and prejudice upon Indigenous peoples for generations. Now Miss Chief Eagle Testickle is giving it back! Evoking the style of dramatically elegant commercials for decadent status items, the glistening form of Miss Chief’s Praying Hands inserts a piercing yet playful perspective into the conversation on reconciliation and Indigenous resilience.
