“Nin gii-kiiwe: I have come home”
Indigenous Storytelling Lecture Series
Please join us for Barbara Moktthewenkwe Wall’s talk “Nin gii-kiiwe: I have come home” on November 16th, part of the Dadibaajimo Indigenous Storytelling Lecture Series.
Barbara Moktthewenkwe Wall is a citizen of the Potawatomi Nation of Shawnee, Oklahoma, and a Professor in the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies at Trent University. She is a traditional Knowledge Holder and storyteller well-practiced in re-telling Anishinaabe stories to audiences of all ages. Wall's work uses Indigenous pedagogy to decolonize and revitalize knowledge of the past and its dispersion throughout Turtle Island. She gives special consideration to the role of the matriarch and the experiences of women in the communities where she teaches, learns, and lives.
