Dr. Jo-ann Archibald, Q’um Q’um Xiiem, is Sto:lo and St’at’imc, Associate Dean for Indigenous Education, NITEP Director, and Professor in Educational Studies. She will share her scholarly writing experiences and guidance that she received from Indigenous Elders, storytellers, and Tricksters such as Coyote about Indigenous stories. In this session, she and those who attend will have an opportunity to share their approaches, concerns, and successes about the ways that Indigenous stories can shape our writing so that we address the heart, mind, body, and spirit in our scholarship. Dr. Archibald is the author of “Indigenous Storywork: Educating the Heart, Mind, Body, and Spirit” published by UBC Press in 2008.
The Coyote’s Keyboard Writing Series emphasizes ways of presenting and writing Indigenous scholarship. All are welcome to attend these sessions.
