Settler Colonialism 101 with Chelsea Vowel

Chelsea Vowel is Métis from manitow-sâkahikan (Lac Ste. Anne) Alberta, residing in amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton). Parent to six children, she has a BEd, LLB, and MA, and is a nêhiyawêwin (Cree) language instructor and assistant lecturer in the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.

Chelsea is a public intellectual, writer, and educator whose work intersects language, gender, Métis self-determination, futurisms, and resurgence. Author of Indigenous Writes: A Guide to First Nations, Métis & Inuit in Canada, she and her co-host Molly Swain produce the Indigenous feminist sci-fi podcast Métis in Space, and co-founded the Métis in Space Land Trust. Her first collection of short fiction, Buffalo is the New Buffalo, was published in April 2022 by Arsenal Pulp Press.

This event will be online and will involve a 20-30 minute presentation by Chelsea and then an extended Q&A with the audience.
