Láthalom Gi Matan Guma’! Welcome to the front of the house, a sacred space of gathering, connecting, and growing our collective knowing. Four artists from Låguas, a place rarely, if ever, represented in ‘the field of performance’ on this continent, share ways we activate our ancestral worldview through our art practice in alignment with the movement for ending gender-based violence, and cultivating Indigenous well-being and sovereignty. By sharing the methodology behind our current NPN Creation & Development fund project MALI’E’ • INETNON, we illuminate the ways backing Indigenous leadership is essential for meaningfully addressing the climate crisis and affirming feelings of connection, human belonging, and unity with all of creation. 

This session will provide closed captioning in English.
