Join Our June Indigenous Conversations Series

Spectrum announces a special series in June led by staff correspondent Kevin McCarty who has completed an MA in Indigenous & Inter-Religious Studies at Vancouver School of Theology. 

It will feature a special partnership with Neibow Wabusk (Campbell Page), DMin, RP, CSCP, of the Moose Cree and Red River Métis Nations, the Indigenous Relations Director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada. 

During the month of June, which is National Indigenous History Month in Canada, we plan to theme each week’s content along the teachings of the medicine wheel. With the Creator at the centre, we will start with the Eastern (spirit) side for the first week, South (emotion) for the second week, and West (the physical) for the third week, with Northern (the mind) aspects for the fourth week of the month. However, creators are not limited to this pathway, and can choose the best methods of expression for their respective Nations as we explore spirit, emotion, the physical, and the mind.

All Indigenous creators are welcome to participate and we extend a special call to interested online collaborators around the world. We invite a wide range of creative methodology, from essays, photography, poetry, to short audio and video media responding to the themes that emerge from the medicine wheel. As we honour First Peoples we wish to give space to Indigenous creators that have a desire to express themes of cultural resilience and strength. Spectrum aims to build reciprocal relationships with those artists, poets, and other writers who are pursuing opportunities for cultural dialogue and demonstration.
