Making Space for Indigenous Voices: Sharing Our Stories with the World
March 29 @ 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 (Anishinaabeg and mixed settler) with Waubgeshig Rice, an author and journalist from Wasauksing First Nation. Waubgeshig Rice has written many brilliant pieces, including his 2018 novel Moon of the Crusted Snow, which quickly became a national bestseller.
Christine Luckasavitch and Waubgeshig Rice will dive into their favourite works by Indigenous authors, the importance of making space for Indigenous storytelling, and imagining Indigenous futurisms. Plus, they’ll talk a little bit about Waubgeshig’s upcoming novel Moon of the Turning Leaves, the sequel to Moon of the Crusted Snow, to be released in October 2023.
