Stories for Survival: Jordan Abel
Originally aired on October 22
Re-release November 30
From Griffin Poetry Prize-winner Jordan Abel comes NISHGA, a deeply personal, devastating autobiographical meditation on the complicated legacies of Canada’s residential school system. Abel interrogates the complexities of intergenerational survivors’ relationships to Indigenous identity. This special event will thoughtfully confront the difficult truths about engaging with histories of colonial violence, for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples; and meditate on the role of art and storytelling in this process.
