Artist Talk: “On the Land”

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 12:15 pm - 12:15 pm EDT

Bangishimo is an IndigiQueer Anishinaabe photographer originally from Couchiching First Nations. They are a community organizer for Idle No More and co-founder of O:se Kenhionhata:tie, also known as Land Back Camp.

Bangishimo will be sharing their journey into the world of photography, how they created "On the Land" and some of the projects they are currently working on.

On the Land is a portrait series that answers the question “What does it mean or what has it meant to live on this Indigenous territory?” In this pandemic era, many of us are trying to find a place where we feel safe and belong. Now is the time to reflect and ask yourself this question.

Please join the Peace and Conflict Studies Department on June 21, 2022, to observe National Indigenous Peoples Day and the entire month to reflect on this question with Bangishimo.
