Hounouring Indigenous Writers: Reading and Conversation with Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm and Dallas Hunt
March 7, 2022 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pmfree
Join this reading and conversation with Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm and Dallas Hunt.
Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm is a profoundly influential figure in Indigenous literature, founding Kegedonce Press. Kegedonce has been supporting and publishing Indigenous authors, illustrators, editors, and designers since 1993. Akiwenzie-Damm’s own writing, both critical and creative, is similarly path-clearing, exploring the nuances and complexities of Indigenous erotica, and inviting conversation on a global scale.
Akiwenzie-Damm’s latest collection, (Re)Generation, edited with an introduction by Cree poet and scholar, Dallas Hunt, contains poetry that explores a range of issues: from violence against Indigenous women and lands to Indigenous erotica and the joyous intimate encounters between bodies. The introduction by Hunt locates her work within the field of Indigenous literature and meditates on her influence on the field of Indigenous erotica.
