ABSTRACT
The paper plots a genealogy of the monument commemorating Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) built in Brantford in 1886 and reveals its continued polynational contestation and resignification. After a discussion of theories of colonial and Indigenous monuments and memorialization, the essay examines how four Haudenosaunee (Iroquois)—Chief A. G. Smith, poet Pauline Johnson, and photographers Jeffrey Thomas and Shelley Niro—have used the monument as a vehicle to advocate Haudenosaunee sovereignty as well as racial and gender parity.
