MLC Banquet

Join us on Tuesday, May 13 at 6:00 pm for a great night of food and networking, featuring a keynote by Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair Words Floating on Water: The past, present, and future of stories in manitowapow.

 

Manitowapow is the original name for this place, a name now known as Manitoba. It has been host to thousands of years of writing, expression, and literature found in song and story authored on the land, on hide and birchbark, and on paper – a virtual library around us.

 

A foray into this wide canon reveals rich histories and knowledge into the diverse ways Indigenous intellectuals have perceived, expressed, and recorded their own and their community’s experiences and stories. In 2012, the first anthology to honour this history entitled Manitowapow: Aboriginal Writings from the Land of Water (co-edited by Niigaanwewidam Sinclair and Warren Cariou) was released, becoming one of the best-selling Manitoban books in recent memory. Come take a trip through time, learning how to read the history of criticism and creativity in the world that surrounds us today.

Tickets: $40 available through MLC Registration
