Author and screenwriter J.F. Martel sits down with Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm and Katherena Vermette, two of the contributors to a groundbreaking anthology, This Place: 150 Years Retold , for a conversation on Canada’s colonial past and present and a look at how history and current affairs translate to a graphic novel format.
 
Explore the past 150 years through the eyes of Indigenous creators in This Place . Beautifully illustrated, these stories are an emotional and enlightening journey through Indigenous wonderworks, psychic battles, and time travel. See how Indigenous peoples have survived a post-apocalyptic world since the first contact with Europeans.
