Imagining the future: an op-ed in La Presse
April 4, 2016
Jason Edward Lewis and Skawennati co-wrote an op-ed that was published on Sunday April 3rd, 2016. It is a fair and well thought out piece that considers how lack of representation can cause harm and that everyone needs to have a true understanding of Indigenous history as we move to the future. It’s fine to dream of a white Christmas but a White future is a bit too narrow. The Initiative for Indigenous Futures (IIF) aims to enable Indigenous creatives to push against forces, literal or metaphysical, so that they can show that the future will be more than what has been seen so far.
Take a look at the full piece, which is currently French-only, to get the in-depth story! We’ll post the English version when (if) it gets published.
