Wapikoni mobile : L’allégorie de la hache – Musique – Voir.ca

"Pour une deuxième année consécutive, Samian mène un  concert-bénéfice au profit de Wapikoni mobile.

 

Il y a une hache. Celle qui, maniée par le gouvernement Harper, sabrait l’été dernier le budget de Wapikoni mobile, le studio ambulant de création privilégiant les communautés autochtones. Puis il y a l’autre, la hache de guerre qu’on déterre avant de se lancer dans une bataille."

La grande chorale des Premières Nations

La grande chorale  des Premières Nations | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Dans ses deux premiers romans, Le chemin des âmes et Les saisons de la solitude, l’auteur métis ontarien Joseph Boyden jetait un regard lucide et pénétrant sur l’univers autochtone contemporain. Son dernier-né, Dans le grand cercle du monde, même s’il plonge le lecteur en plein XVIIe siècle, aux débuts de la Nouvelle-France, préserve ce même souci de comprendre de l’intérieur, sans les idéaliser ou les mythifier, le quotidien et la vision du monde des Amérindiens."

"She's so pale": The good and bad of national exposure | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"I am 98% positive that if this NPR article wasn’t accompanied by a photo, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. There is very little commentary challenging my ideas, or what I had to say about Native students transitioning to college–it’s all focused on how I look.

 

You wonder why I care so deeply about representations? This is why I care. Because all those people think that Native identity is tied to looking like something off the side of a football helmet."

This film might be difficult to watch, but it's "potentially transformational", says Chelsea Vowel. The revenge tale set in the 70s residential schools era is a work of fiction, but every single event portrayed has happened in Canada's indigenous communities.

Indian Roads

Indian Roads | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
C’est un écrivain qui nous entraîne à la rencontre de l’une des faces cachées de l’Amérique contemporaine : celle des réserves indiennes, plus de trois cents aux Etats-Unis. Certaines ne font que quelques hectares, d’autres sont immenses, mais la plupart d’entre elles sont d’une extrême pauvreté. D’origine ojibwé, David Treuer a grandi sur une réserve du nord du Minnesota, et il nous permet de découvrir ce monde de l’intérieur sous toutes ses facettes : crime et misère, casinos et richesses, sauvegarde des langues et de la culture autochtones. Voyage à travers le continent américain mais aussi dans le passé, Indian Roads est une histoire que nous n’avions encore jamais entendue racontée ainsi, un récit passionnant et un formidable exemple de résilience.À l’instar d’Enterre mon coeur à Wounded Knee, ce livre est appelé à devenir un classique. « Un portrait cru, sans concession et totalement authentique, un récit pénétrant, parfois bouleversant, souvent jubilatoire, où se mêlent journalisme et autobiographie. Treuer proclame haut et fort que les Indiens font bel et bien partie de l’Amérique moderne. »The New York Times
