Description

Indian Summer Festival 2018

MYTHICAL VANCOUVER
Stories about place

PAUSE PAVILION PARTNER: Vancity

Dominant mythologies celebrate Vancouver as a young, new city built by European settlers about 200 years ago. But this is in fact an ancient place, rich with over 10,000 years of Coast Salish culture. Listening to oral histories, sharing diverse perspectives of place can expand understandings and challenge colonial erasures. Join us for an evening of stories about these beautiful lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, often named the most liveable city in the world. Curated by Kamala Todd, Metis-Cree filmmaker and urban geographer.

Featuring:

- Sociology and colonial legal history UBC professor Renisa Mawani


- Tsleil-Waututh poet and writer and winner of the 2017 Mayor's award for emerging artist in Literary Arts Wil George


- Audrey Siegl, Musqueam activist


- Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Snuneymuxw First Nations singer Salia Joseph


FREE – members of the public welcome to attend. Registration required.
