Things We’re Into This Week: April 13th – 20th

13

April, 2017

WHERE TO GO

On April 19, Team 88 will be celebrating the 88 days out countdown to the North American Indigenous Games. Taking place at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto, this FREE public event will have activities from 11am until 3pm with the formal announcement beginning at 12:30pm.

The Castlemain team rounds up the new, Indigenous, cultural things they’re into this week — from new books, to movies, to speaker series, to music and podcasts!

WHAT WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT

As part of New York Fashion Week, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian will be producing a runway show at the American Indian Museum Heye Center called “The Power of Native Design” and will feature designers Dorothy Grant, Jamie Okuma, and Bethany Yellowtail. We can’t wait to see their latest collections!

WHAT TO SEE

Earlier this month the Vancouver Art Gallery had artist Sonny Assu take over their Instagram account. It proved to be fascinating and gave a unique look into his life. Now is your last chance to see his latest exhibit “We Come to Witness: Sonny Assu in Dialogue with Emily Carr” as the exhibit closes on Sunday, April 23.

WHAT TO LEARN

The latest exhibit at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, Amazonia: The Rights of Nature, is offering special tours with guest speakers. We are excited about the one on Thursday, April 20th at 7 pm about Indigenous Self-Governance. Andrea Vasquez, a UBC Ph.D. forestry student and a descendant of the Quechua Indigenous group, will be giving a guided tour and speaking about the federational Indigenous self-government system in the Peruvian Amazon.
