Unceded Airwaves Episode January 4, 2016

Queering decolonial movements and making space for Two-spirit Voices

11:00am - 12:00pm

In this episode, Indigenous Radio Collective member Samantha Nock (Cree-Metis) and Lindsay McKinnon (Cree-Metis) discuss the decolonial potentiality of queering decolonial movements. They address issues of colonial perceptions of gender, learning, and relation-building from their perspectives as Queer and Queer/Trans Two-Spirit people (respectively). By focusing on conversations around body-sovereignty and autonomy they attempt to integrate Indigenous Feminist frameworks into the process of Space-Making in academic pursuits, as well as, grassroots community-building. Further, the co-hosts begin to unpack the experience of alienation from ‘living the good life’, seeking to participate in Ceremony, as well as, the ways colonialism seeks to divide Two-Spirit peoples from their places within our communities and Nations.
