This event offers the chance for an exploration of the relationship between the native and the colonial, the traditional and the modern, and the resistance and the transformations that indigenous peoples have had to face up and down the American continent. The technologies and spaces available today allow indigenous artists and writers to disseminate and conserve aspects of their culture, such as language, which have been threatened for centuries. The participants will reflect on the diversity as well as the complexity of the encounter between all these worlds at an event that hopes to offer ideas about how political and cultural links can be built among the different indigenous communities in the Americas. Sean Cranbury (Canada), Garry Gottfriedson (Canada) and Gloria Mendoza Borda (Peru) will talk to Jorge Alejandro Vargas.
Event organized together with the Eccles Centre
