Miss Chief Eagle Testickle Presents Her Memoir: Kent Monkman and Gisèle Gordon in conversation with Carleton's Adrian Harewood.

An unmissable event for all those interested in a gloriously queer, art-drenched, Indigenous look at the "true" history of North America/Turtle Island with a special appearance by Miss Chief Eagle Testickle.

 

Join celebrated Cree artist Kent Monkman and his long-time collaborator Gisèle Gordon as they discuss their new work The Memoirs of Miss Chief Eagle Testickle: A True and Exact Accounting of the History of Turtle Island , a genre-defying work based on the paintings of one the most important painters working today that will remake readers' understanding of the land called North America. A story of this continent that reframes the narrative to be one of Indigenous resilience, reshaping our shared understanding and lighting the path ahead.

 

After a reading with Miss Chief, Monkman and Gordon join Adrian Harewood for a conversation.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
