Miss Chief’s Sovereign Eroticism: Queer Indigenous Resilience in Kent Monkman's Work
Join Dr. June Scudeler (Métis), assistant professor in Indigenous Studies at Simon Fraser University, and Issaku Inami, MOA Volunteer Associate Gallery Host and queer activist, for an virtual presentation and discussion on the queer Indigenous resilience, sexuality and eroticism of Kent Monkman's Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience.

In Shame and Prejudice, Cree artist Kent Monkman creates an alternate story that inserts queer Indigenous peoples into the colonial history of Canada. Created in response to Canada's 150 celebrations, the exhibition depicts the colonial legacy of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people, residential schools, and high Indigenous incarceration rates. Monkman dismantles the official history of Canada through Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, his two-spirit alter ego, who appears in many of his paintings, films, and performances.

This event is a pre-recorded tour, premiering live on Zoom. Hosts June Scudeler and Issaku Inami will be available for a live Q+A after the recorded tour. Hosts June Scudeler (Métis) and Issaku Inami will guide viewers through selected pieces in the exhibit and explore themes of queer Indigenous resilience in Monkman’s work. The online presentation will be followed by a Q&A.

Online, via Zoom.
