Indigenous Community, Resistance, and Media (A Panel and Guided Q&A)

Mainstream media has often misrepresented Indigenous community and resistance. This misrepresentation has facilitated both interpersonal and state violence against Indigenous peoples and been used to undermine direct action. Indigenous journalists however have also fought back with their own media initiatives, many of which have been crucial in moments of critical resistance.

Join us for a discussion on this and much much more. Monday. Feb. 8 at 6pm in the SSMU Ballroom(3480 McTavish.) Panelists include Irkar Beljaars, Kahnentinetha, Steve Bonspeil.
