Why Does Representation Matter? Recently I have seen a lot of discussion around representation and people struggling to understand or articulate why it's important. Why does it matter how people and ideas are shown in film, photography, and the news? Aren't there more pressing on the ground needs that we should focus on instead? Since this account is about changing representations of land, I wanted to address it here. Representation matters because it creates the ideological conditions necessary for realizing on the ground change. Basically, the more we talk about something in a certain way, the more we hear it and see it represented in a certain way, the more likely we are to accept it as true, as natural, or as "common sense" regardless of it's actual basis in truth. This is what psychologists call the Illusory Truth Effect - the tendency to believe information to be correct because of exposure rather than reason or evidence. This kind of ingrained belief especially across whole groups of people and cultures leads to what is called reification - or making REAL something that previously had only been imagined or talked about. In other words, we try to shape physical reality to fit our believes rather than allowing our beliefs to be shaped by truth. (Example of this is comments. My original post was too long.) - Once established, these realities are easy to perpetuate and incredibly difficult to destabilize. (Especially when, like wilderness, they intersect with entrenched power structures like colonialism and capitalism). But the whole idea behind Indigenous Geotags is that this process can go the other way, that representing these lands as deeply cultural and historical, as belonging to indigenous people, is the first step toward creating a more just reality.
