Sovereignty is a performance where Jordan Bennett re-inscribes the words of the Indian Act on a teepee in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. The piece aims to clarify the jargon found in the soon-to-be-signed “Status Indian” agreement by highlighting the rights and rules involved with becoming a “Status Indian” in Canada.
