Presentations go into great depth concerning decolonized perspectives and why they are important to understand before teaching about IRS, as well as the intergenerational effects and what is meant by “it takes seven generations to heal.”

 

 

General Public Audience (1 hr 30+)

Multi-media presentation to include photographs, a music video, readings from Fatty Legs and A Stranger at Home. IRS history and Inuvialuit culture are explored with the bulk of the emphasis on reading passages, Margaret-Olemaun’s storytelling, and questions from the audience. While education is an important part of these presentations, they tend to be a touch less weighty than for educationally focused audiences, and use a more gentle approach to introduce IRS history. These presentation also cover a few more general interest topics as well (such as publishing a book, or what it is like to work as a mother-in-law/ daughter-in-law team), unless specified otherwise.
