Indigenous Spoonies Revolt! Disability & Chronic Illness in Indigenous Arts
Hosted by Crushing Colonialism / Disability Visibility Project
7:00PM in New Zealand and Eastern Time in the United States
On September 15th, Crushing Colonialism and the Disability Visibility Project will be sponsoring Indigenous Spoonies Revolt! Disability & Chronic Illness in Indigenous Arts, bringing together Indigenous artists from the U.S. and New Zealand for a virtual discussion on disability representation, empowerment, advocacy, healing and solidarity.
“Indigenous Spoonies Revolt serves as a place to uplift our disabled and chronically ill Indigenous creatives”, says Jen Deerinwater, founder of Crushing Colonialism. “This is a space to share our art, but also our stories of pain, discrimination, and lack of disability access within and outside Indigenous communities. This event also highlights our resilience as a people who have survived hundreds of years of genocide”.
