1 - Indigeneity

This episode of Taking Up Space is exploring the complexity of Indigeneity on the unceded territories of the Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ Peoples. It features conversations on Indigeneity, Indigenous resilience, and Indigenous feminism. Our panelists, who each come from different parts of Turtle Island, are here to share their experiences of living as an Indigenous person in present-day Canada, and how colonialism and the strength of their communities in the face of colonialism has shaped their own identity.

Ann-Bernice Thomas hosts a panel with Caroline Grady, Oic. ȻESTÁNIYE Mataya Jim, Veronica Martisius, and Lisa Schnitzler to talk about the intersections of Indigeneity, gender, land, justice, resistance and resilience.

In this episode we feature a territory acknowledgement, discussion on the Douglas Treaty, and Indigenous resurgence by Oic. ȻESTÁNIYE Mataya Jim and poetry by Shayli Robinson.
