A Native Community Conversation Regarding Mascots, Imagery, and Cultural Appropriation

Indigenous community members, leaders, and scholars discussing issues associated with Native identity, health, and rights

Sunday 13 September 2020

The Ohketeau Cultural Council and Double Edge Theatre presented A Native Community Conversation Regarding Mascots, Imagery, and Cultural Appropriation livestreamed on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Sunday 13 September 2020 at 9 a.m. AKDT (Juneau, UTC -8) / 10 a.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 12 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 1 p.m. EDT (Ashfield, UTC -4) / 18:00 BST (London, UTC +1) / 19:00 CEST (Berlin, UTC +2).

In Part I of The Living Presence of Our History, we discussed the meaningful history of place. We need to understand this history, as well as the continued presence of Native people in Western Massachusetts. Throughout that discussion, we identified a need for further conversation and education on issues faced by Native communities today. Right now there are several bills in the MA legislature concerning Native identity and cultural appropriation. Please tune in to Part II and listen to this incredible panel of 10, consisting of Indigenous community members, leaders, and scholars who will discuss issues associated with Native identity, health, and rights.

As in the first event, in-person attendance is very limited due to COVID health restrictions. Please visit both Ohketeau and Double Edge websites for more information about collaborative public events. For more information about our upcoming event contact tickets@doubleedgetheatre.org.
