Bandits Bandanas Remember You Are On Stolen Land
We cannot move forward without first acknowledging our past. The artist explained, "We all must remember that the land we live on was not 'discovered,' but rather stolen from the indigenous people who settled here first." Heldáy's hope is that this bandana is one we can all wear to own that history, as much as it may hurt. It is only through remembering the evils and transgressions of the past that we may all move forward without repeating them.
