“For a long time these institutions have held authority over the way Aboriginal People are perceived by the public, and therefore they’ve controlled our social agency. The way in which we were portrayed has left a distorted image of who we are with the general public, and we have a really special place at this museum to be able to change that. And so we’re in really exciting times.” — Laura McBride.
