Performance Workshop with Cheyenne Rain LeGrande ᑭᒥᐊᐧᐣ
on March 14, 2-4 pm
The works of seven emerging Indigenous artists will be exploring the questions:
What does it mean to be a guest in this territory in relation to Indigeneity?
How do we as Indigenous artists relate to the land we occupy while also acknowledging our presence as visitors?
Cheyenne Rain LeGrande ᑭᒥᐊᐧᐣ (Nehiyaw)
Jake Kimble (Deninu K’ue)
Lacie Burning (Kanien'kehá:ka, Mohawk)
M.V. Williams (Skwxú7mesh, Wet'suwet'en)
Taran Kootenhayoo (Denesułįné, Nakoda Sioux)
Whess Harman (Carrier Wit’at)
These seven Indigenous artists will be creating works on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish people that are originally from outside this territory. In What We Bring With Us, the artists’ work speaks to their relationship to this land and kinship founded through displacement in works ranging from photography to performance.
