This year’s Keynote Talk – “Be Safe, Nīcimos”: Indigenous Freedom and Curiosity in the Wastelands – will be delivered by Erica Violet Lee (Moontime Warrior).

What does it mean to be safe and free in the context of a colonial state? The frontlines of Indigenous struggle are everywhere, now: from the prairies and rivers to city streets, and in classrooms. In a world where our movement is criminalized and our presence is resistance, Indigenous curiosity is radical vulnerability, memory, and futurism. Travelling toward an Indigenous feminist conception of freedom, we reclaim our homes in the world.

Erica Violet Lee is a Nēhiyaw writer, student, and community organizer from misâskwatôminihk (Saskatoon), Treaty 6 Territory and Métis Homeland.
