Not only this, but she also posted the screenshot of her email showing the racist messages she receives from haters. At the time of her performance, she changed a single word in Canada’s national anthem. She sang “our home on native land” instead of “our home and native land,” an exquisite but powerful reference to Canada’s colonial legacy and continued denial of Indigenous Peoples. Although her small mistake got her into trouble and her change of lyrics drew praise from indigenous and non-indigenous peoples alike.

I don’t understand how many royal crybabies there are in Canada. It’s a word from a song and it’s the truth. ❤️

Canada has a real problem and they have yet to acknowledge it and do something about it. I am so sorry that you have had to endure this from one of the worst representations of these lands. I am Indigenous, you chose the correct word. I admire your strength and thank you 💔

This is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever read. We love them, cowards really feel too fragile and threatened. Keep telling the truth, Jully! ❤️

Eva Jewell, Director of Research at One Institute, states that “Indigenous Peoples have been taking that line for many years, actually this is something that is familiar within our communities. So to see Jully turn that into the Canadian national anthem…it made me see that she’s watched us, she literally understands us and that’s why she understands it.” Although there are a lot of people who weren’t happy with the change in lyrics of the national anthem. Their disgust led them to make racist comments under the viral video and news articles about Black’s rendition. One of those critics emailed and addressed the undersigned questioning her “boldness” to alter the anthem national while residing in a country where the white majority lives.
