Settler-Colonialism and Indigenous Futures
In this dialogue, two Indigenous writers — Ali Cobby Eckermann and Elissa Washuta — will read from their work and discuss the work of memory, documentation, interrogation and imagination in creating literary work while surviving the ongoing apocalypse of colonization. They will discuss the significance of creative inquiry into personal and community suffering resulting from colonial oppression. They will also examine the restorative potential for the poem or personal essay to serve as a site of encounter between intergenerational trauma and imagined futures of good relations between beings.
