(MERCREDI 13h) Re-appropriating Indigenous identity

WORKSHOP: Re-appropriating Indigenous identity


@ QPIRG Concordia – 1500 de Maisonneuve West, #204

part of DISORIENTATION 2012[:]

This presentation looks critically at the uses and misuses of Indigenous imagery, from contact to today. Using a slideshow combined with an oral presentation, topics include negative stereotyping of native people, government and media propaganda against natives, the anti-Indigenous lobby, land rights, and the commodification of Indigenous identity. This workshop debunks past and present cultural appropriation of Indigenous culture and people.

Presented by Clifton Nicholas, a member of the Kanehsatake Mohawk Community.
