  • 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.
