This roundtable discussion seeks to unpack the concept of “stewardship” from perspectives rooted in place and culture. What is stewardship in relation to Native Feminisms, Indigenous concepts of land, gender, and territory? How does stewardship intersect with sovereignty, artistic practice, and collections?

Participants:
Beatrice Deer, Program Officer, Avataq Cultural Institute, the Inuit cultural organization of Nunavik (Northern Quebec)
Lisa Myers, Artist and Assistant Lecturer in the Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University
Lindsay Nixon, Indigenous editor-at-large, Canadian Art
Eve Tuck, Associate Professor of Critical Race and Indigenous Studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto

Moderator: Michelle LaVallee, ‎Director at Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada Art Centre
