Taanishi, IPAA members and allies:

IPAA Network Coordinator Brittany Ryan and I had the privilege of attending PETAPAN: First Light Symposium this past weekend. A biannual gathering that brings together Indigenous artists from the Atlantic regions and Turtle Island.

We hosted our 4th Critical Mass conversation with Atlantic leaders: Julie Pellissier-Lush, Natalie SappierJeff Ward & Gordon White.

Cheryl L'Hirondelle lead a participatory intervention called Yahkâskwan mîkiwâhp
