Indigenous Futurism: Apocalyptic Survival with Precedent

2019 Barbara Powell Memorial Lecture

By Cherie Dimaline

Looking at the work of writers including Waubgeshing Rice, Rebecca Roanhorse along with her own book "The Marrow Thieves", Metis author Cherie Dimaline will speak about how Indigenous stories address dystopian potentials and speak to an uncertain future with authority born of recent and ongoing experience. Discussion includes a look at prevalent themes in modern speculative works and finding hope in the despair.

Cherie Dimaline is a writer and editor from the Georgian Bay Metis Community in Ontario who has published 4 books of short stories, literary fiction and young adult fiction. Her latest book, "The Marrow Thieves" won the 2017 Governor General's Award and was a selection for CBC's 2018 Canada Reads.

All interested persons are cordially invited to attend this event, which will be followed by a public reception. Free public parking will be available in Lot 1.
