Perhaps it is not obvious to many of us, but the future will be/is Indigenous. Please join us virtually for a one-hour discussion with a Q&A on how Indigenous peoples are visualizing inclusive futures and mobilizing creative media (e.g., journalism, video-game design, and artwork) to foster Indigenous activism, restorative justice, and education. As part of the UConn Indigenous Speaker Series and Diverse Perspectives in Digital Media & Design Speaker Series, we are honored to be joined by these three leaders in this space!
