Why Indigenous Knowledge Matters: Creating New Moral Fabrics in Settler Colonial Societies
This is an offsite tour. Meeting point: The Greenhouse at the South West Side of Trinity Bellwoods Park, 790 Queen Street W.
Led by Christine Migwans and presented by the Feminist Art Museum
The Feminist Art Museum (FAM) secures space for women (women-identified and gender non-binary people) in contemporary art. Currently in development, FAM is conceived of by curators Xenia Benivolski and Su-Ying Lee. Guest speaker Christine Migwans is an Anishinaabe defender of Indigenous rights.
Christine Migwans will discuss Indigenous epistemological resurgence with particular focus on attuning senses to the land and spirits, and treaties between people and non-humans (animals, plant life, land, water, air etc.) while walking through Trinity Bellwoods Park. Overarching themes include Indigenous space and time vs. colonial “modernity.” This session has been developed through an ongoing conversation between Christine Migwans, Xenia Benivolski and Su-Ying Lee. This conversation invites the public to take part in the Feminist Art Museum’s research and development.
