All the plenary talks are by amazing Indigenous women! Just heard Alana Sayers speak about the really difficult time she had getting English department at her uni yo accept a reading list (for comps maybe?) with almost all Indigenous authors. There weren’t enough “experts”. She fought & won, though.
Tonight there is a plenary with Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, which I’m also excited about. Have read Dancing on Our Turtle’s Back and plan to read more of her work. https://www.leannesimpson.ca/book/dancing-on-our-turtles-back #HASTAC2019
