Indigenous Storytelling in Moving Images with Chanelle Lajoie
Everyone welcome! Email email@example.com to receive the Zoom link to the meeting.
Identity, place, and community: these are common themes woven into Indigenous narratives. Let’s explore the ways in which Indigenous storytellers strengthen their voices, relate their experiences and recount yesteryear as a means to shape tomorrow within these topics on-screen, as they stand alone and intersect.
