*Re Emily Carr’s painting, originally titled Indian Church (as in the cutline above).
In May, 2018, the Art Gallery of Ontario, which holds the piece, re-hung the painting with a new name because the word “Indian” causes pain, the AGO said.
The new name Church at Yuquot Village references the British Columbia Indigenous community where the church was located.
A CBC piece about the name change is here.
