Wednesday, November 17th | 5:00pm - 6:30pm 

In this session of Out of the Margins, we will explore the stereotypes we have internalized (as non-Native and Native participants); we will excavate where they came from through an analysis of mainstream media mis-representation; and we will map out ways we can not only stop stereotyping Indigenous people, but support inspired Natives' voices, creations, and self-representations.

*Participants are encouraged to read the preparation work designed for this session before attending.
