From Here and Beyond: Stories of Art, Scholarship, and Language Reclamation

Dr. Jennifer Hardwick, Department of English

 

In the spring of 2017 a team of Indigenous and settler artists, scholars, Elders, activists, and community members assembled in Katarokwi/Kingston, Ontario, to create a series of public sound installations in Anishinaabemowin and Kanienke:ha, the traditional languages of the territory. The installations, which included stories, songs, prayers, conversations, and introductions, were designed to draw attention to the often-invisible presence of Indigenous peoples in the city, and to support grassroots language revitalization. This presentation will provide an overview of From Here and Beyond: Stories of Katarokwi/Kingston’s structure and outcomes, and offer some lessons I learned about collaboration, the importance of public scholarship, and the role that universities can play in supporting Indigenous language and cultural revitalization.
