As Rita Joe’s famous poem reads “two ways I talk, both ways I say”, the concept of Etuaptmunk has been around for generations. We often see, teach, and expect the world to operate from our perspective and our perspective alone. Rebecca Thomas will speak on the concept of Two-Eyed seeing and how seeing with both eyes can allow for greater understanding of Indigenous peoples’ plight in what is currently known as Canada.
Rebecca Thomas, author of I’m Finding My Talk, will be signing in the Nimbus Publishing booth #531/533 on Friday at 1:00 PM. From sewing regalia to dancing at powow to learning traditional language, I’m Finding My Talk by by award-winning spoken-word artist and Mi’kmaw activist Rebecca Thomas is about rediscovering her community, and finding culture.
