Mawachihitotaak: Métis Studies Symposium (virtual)
May 6, 2022
This gathering will take place virtually from May 3-6, 2022. Our intention is to create a space for Métis scholars, art makers, knowledge holders, students, language speakers, organizers, writers, and other community leaders to share knowledge and engage in conversation together. Through our visiting we will discuss a range of Métis priorities and scholarship areas, all while nourishing our relationships and celebrating the different forms that we are carrying and building Métis knowledge.
Mawachihitotaak was conceived on the premise of bringing students, the grassroots community, and academics together by a collective of 32 Métis thinkers from across the country. It is a free event and welcomes everybody. Knowledge categories that will be woven throughout the conference include:
- Academic Research
- Community Observations
- Traditional Knowledge
- Arts-Based Explorations
Sessions will take the form of presentations, panels, round table discussions, workshops, artist talks, art interventions, film screenings, poetry/spoken word/literature readings, and musical performances – all virtually.
