The Indigenous Women and Youth Resilience
Project at the Faculty of Native Studies explores
the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous
women and girls through a lens of Indigenous
resilience. In this first event of the project,
an Indigenous panel consisting of a dancer,
playwright and visual artists explores the question:
what is the relationship between Indigenous
practices of resilience or resistance and the arts?
Featuring short films and visual art, our panelists
discuss and critique this complex relationship,
their experiences and motivations as Indigenous
artists, as well the concepts of resilience and
resistance within lived Indigenous experiences.
