Come celebrate Indigenous Disability Awareness Month with us!

We’ll be welcoming Christa Couture, a performing and recording artist, writer and broadcaster. Christa is proudly Indigenous (mixed Cree and Scandinavian), disabled, queer, and a mom. We will also be joined by Donovan Gates, a mostly self-taught argillite, wood, gold, and silver carver. Donovan is a registered member of the Old Massett band from Haida Gwaii islands on the west coast of British Columbia and uses his artwork to reflect his Haida heritage.

Where: Online (Zoom) – because of the pandemic, now, and the geography of Canada, always.
Date: Thursday, November 18th, 2021
Time: 12pm Pacific Time/3pm Eastern Time.
Guests: Host Kristina Sheldon with guests Donavon Gates and Christa Couture.
Who: Everyone! ASL, LSQ, English/French closed captioning, as well as simultaneous French translation will be provided.
