All Our Relations: The Art of Land and Indigenous Stewardship
Panel Discussion
Friday, January 19, 2018, 4–6pm
Jackman Humanities Institute
170 St. George Street, Room 100

This roundtable discussion seeks to unpack the concept of “stewardship” from perspectives rooted in place and culture. What is stewardship in relation to Native Feminisms, Indigenous concepts of land, gender, and territory? How does stewardship intersect with sovereignty, artistic practice, and collections?
