TRC Poetry: A Night of Indigenous Arts
All students, faculty, and staff are invited to TRC Poetry: A Night of Indigenous Arts organized by Huron's TRC committee and Dr. Teresa Hubel. The TRC speaker series is hosting a night of Indigenous art/poetry/performance.
Please join us in the Library Commons to hear Poet Jessica Hay and Writer/Collage Artist/Zine maker Jenna Rose Sands speak to Huron Students and Faculty.
All are welcome. Food and drinks will be provided.
Jessica Hay is a 22 year old poet, photographer, and public speaker from the Great Lakes region. She is wolf clan from Oneida Nation of the Thames, a daughter, sister, aunt, and student.
Jenna Rose Sands is a Cree Ojibwe artist who is turning her emotional exhaustion over the current state of Indigenous affairs into informative and powerful zines that educate and challenge widespread prejudice regarding Indigenous people. Jenna Rose focuses the experiences and stories in each zine on a different atrocity endured by the Indigenous people of Canada and pairs it with colourful mixed media works for a final result that is both powerful and visually engaging. Seeking to create new dialogue around important issues is a key element within her work, to learn more visit: www.atrocitiesagainstindigenouscanadians.com
