Anishinaabe Thinking, Being, Doing, Knowing, and Living
January 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
What Stories Does the Land Hold? is a conversation series co-presented by the Center for Humans and Nature and The New School at Commonweal as part of the Center’s Questions for a Resilient Future Series
Across the world, Indigenous people share something in common: a connection to land and their Ancestral territories. This series of conversations spotlights a collection of Indigenous voices telling the stories of the land and its stories, connecting us to each other and to all of our relations.
In this conversation, join host and 2021 CHN editorial fellow Christine Luckasavitch with Dr. Amy Shawanda, an Odawa kwe from Wikwemikong unceded territory whose academic work is focused on Anishinaabe motherhood, specifically identifying the challenges, tensions, and strengths of incorporating traditional teachings and pedagogies in daily life. Amy and Christine will discuss the revitalization of Indigenous knowledges, unapologetically making space for Indigenous knowledges, and the realm of Indigenous health.
