The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
16. The Four Questions
TANYA BOTEJU, CHERIE DIMALINE, HUMBLE THE POET, TASHA SPILLET
Moderator: Jael Richardson
These esteemed authors lead a crucial conversation on The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s four questions, empowering audiences of all ages and heritages with a deeper sense of belonging.
Senator Murray Sinclair, chair of The Truth and Reconciliation Commission, said all Indigenous youth must ask themselves four questions: Who Am I? Where do I come from? What is my purpose? Where do I belong? But these questions can be asked by all of Canada’s children. As Senator Murray Sinclair explained, in order to truly reach reconciliation, we need to change the way we act and think. In this second event from Guest Curator Tanya Talaga, a remarkable conversation between Tanya Boteju (Kings, Queens and In-Betweens), Cherie Dimaline (The Marrow Thieves & Empire of Wild), and Humble The Poet (Things No One Else Can Teach Us) will empower kids with a sense of community and belonging.
Presented in partnership with Vancity.
