Part II, Beneath the British Flag, The Crown and Haudenosaunee People Dialogue
Saturday, October 20
1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Part of Royal Subjects Speaker Series
Jeff Thomas and Rick Monture are both leading Six Nations intellectuals passionately questioning persisting stereotypes regarding the Canadian Aboriginal community. This encounter will give them an opportunity to re-contextualize two historical narratives: the complex story behind the British portraits of Four Indian Kings and the tale of the Mohawk poetess, Emily Pauline Johnson. Jeffrey M. Thomas is an Iroquois/Onondaga photographer, curator, and cultural analyst currently living in Ottawa. Dr. Rick Monture, a member of Mohawk Nation, is Assistant Professor of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University.
We acknowledge the support of the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage for the special exhibition programs. Nous reconnaissons l’appui du gouvernement du Canada par l’entremise du ministère du Patrimoine canadien pour les programmes d'exposition spéciale.
