Events & Opportunities

  • This year as part of the <ahref=””>Indigenous Writers Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, the Honouring Indigenous Writers team has put together a schedule of events and wikipedia-related activities designed to be easily accessed and doable online with more flexibility. Every week, join in and participate in weekly Wikipedia activities to make contributions (both large and small) to raise the profiles of Indigenous writers. Check out the event schedule here. Read more at the HIW home page, and at the HIW Wikipedia Meetup Page.
  • On February 25th, join Dallas Hunt, David Gaertner, Karyn Recollet and moderator Lisa Jackson for a Roundable discussion. In this roundtable discussion, panelists will take up Indigenous futurisms—the projection of Indigenous peoples into imagined futures—within the contexts of the “apocalypse.” Looking specifically toward cultural and political resurgence, they will discuss representations of the apocalypse in Indigenous literature, film, and new media while tracing out the practices of care and compassion that will sustain us in the age of the postapocalyptic. Learn more and RSVP here.
  • Indigenous Scholars Lecture Series, Feb. 26 (12pm EST/9am PST) with Aimee Craft, Sarah Hunt/Tłaliłila’ogwa, Jasmine Feather Dionne, and Leah Levac: “Sovereignty, Intimacy and Resistance: Legal and Relational Responses to Gendered Violence Settler Colonialism.” Register here.
