Join Elder Duke Redbird for an enlivening conversation and a provocation, sharing his unique and engaging perspective, drawing from lived experience to question the very nature of our existence.

“Instead of going back to the future, let’s go forward to the past…”

This 45-minute conversation is followed by a brief 15-minute Ask an Elder session.

Duke Redbird is an Elder of the Saugeen First Nation, located on the shores of Lake Huron in Ontario. A celebrated Indigenous visionary as well as being an established public intellectual, poet, painter, broadcaster, and filmmaker, he is also a much sought after keynote speaker, and advisor to both public and private organizations.

As a multidisciplinary artist, he brings an Indigenous lens to modern art and design, and has aided in the emergence of a vibrant Indigenous presence on the contemporary cultural scene, most recently his impact as Artist in Residence at the Urban Indigenous Education Centre where he reviews and revises the curriculum as taught by the Toronto District School Board.

Presented as part of SummerWorks’ Accessibility and Community Wellness Program, generously funded by Aubrey & Marla Dan Foundation.

ASL interpretation is provided for the duration of this event.
