Idle No More Round Dance Rebellion/Revolution

This intervention will be an Idle No More round dance that helps people come to consciousness about the impacts of colonialism on queerness, sexuality, gender, race, ability, and how these are interconnected to the ongoing exploitation of humans, other species, and our environment, through the transgression of space and movement of bodies.

Biographies

Karina Hodoyan (Mexican-Chicana), Kevin O’Connor (Settler/ally) and Alex Wilson (Opaskwayak Cree Nation) are three queer artists, scholars and activists who were brought together as a collective through Idle No More. All three are interested in performances that validate Indigeneity while also opening up space for resistance to colonial oppression.
