“This Place: 150 Years Retold” E-Learning Series
The Division of Students is offering a ten-part weekly e-learning series based on the ground-breaking and critically acclaimed graphic novel anthology turned podcast, “THIS PLACE: 150 YEARS RETOLD” to deepen our understanding of 150 years of Indigenous resistance and resilience.
Through dramatizations and interviews, award-winning author, poet, and podcast host Rosanna Deerchild (Cree) guides us through the heroes, battles, triumphs, and traditions which live outside and beyond the national imaginary that we have come to know through our schools and the curriculum. Each week, we will move through one chapter (if you’re a fan of graphic novels)/episode (for podcast lovers) of “THIS PLACE: 150 YEARS RETOLD” followed by a facilitated discussion. The stories we will cover reflect a rich history of Indigenous resistance and resilience. Learn more about the authors and illustrators here.
Sessions will be held each Wednesday from Noon to 1 PM beginning September 29th through December 1st. Register for one session OR as many as you can attend. Materials (zoom information, graphic novel chapter, podcast episode links) will be sent to you each Monday (review is encouraged but not required) for that Wednesday’s session. You will receive materials/information only for the sessions for which you have registered.
“Indigenous people are this place and it is time we told our stories…The voices of our people are reclaiming and recalling the history that we are. We as storytellers have a responsibility and a gift to tell these stories back into being…We are Kanata…In ‘This Place’, you will learn about amazing pieces of our shared history through interviews with Indigenous authors and illustrators.” – Rosanna Deerchild
