The video installation Sheri Pranteau: Undisappeared, by Groupe Épopée, presents the story of Sheri Pranteau. In Winnipeg in 1999, Pranteau, a Cree-Anishinaabe woman from Manitoba, was sentenced to life in prison for manslaughter and armed robbery. In 2015, out on conditional release, she participated in a panel discussion on indigenous women in the Canadian penal system, organized by McGill University for its law school’s moot court. The installation restores Sheri Pranteau’s voice while highlighting the power structures that command our gaze, built into the very architecture of the moot court.
