November 6 @ 12-2pm | Intersections talk with Michelle Lorna Nahanee (Squamish Nation)
Our first Intersections seminar for this academic year will take place on November 6th from 12 to 2 pm in the Gathering Space, Gzowski College.
We are thrilled welcome Michelle Lorna Nahanee to Trent, speaking on "SÍNULHKAY AND LADDERS, A DECOLONIZING METHODOLOGY ROOTED IN SQUAMISH WAYS OF KNOWING."
Nahanee is a creative director, critical communications scholar and Indigenous change maker. With 20+ years of professional experience in graphic design and communications, she melds technology and tradition to change opinions, build relationships and increase understanding. Her clients are First Nations, NGOs, corporations and government departments. She is a Squamish Nation member from the village of Eslhá7an. Her research-creation project is a life-size board game called Sínulhkay and Ladders that promotes the Squamish practice of Chen chen stway (holding each other up) while working through neocolonial scenarios of oppression expressed as sínulhkay - a double-headed serpent.
This is not to be missed! Please tell students, friends, and community members too - all are welcome.
Free Lunch - all are welcome.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st.
