Initiative for Indigenous Futures


How do Indigenous people imagine themselves in the future? This is the central question of the Symposium on the Future Imaginary. Our goal is to create a space in which visions of tomorrow’s Indigenous communities and cultures, including the work produced during IIF residencies, can be articulated, shared and discussed. We will be inviting community members, artists, academics, and technologists to join us in speculating about what life will be like for our descendants in seven, ten, even twenty generations–science fiction territory! We welcome the playful and the serious, the fantastical and the pragmatic, the traditional and the contemporary.
