Who doesn’t like a great story?
Storytellers have graced our communities, homes and nations across all periods of history and cultures. Our storyteller event will take place on the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississauga’s of the Credit River where UTSC resides. This territory was the subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

Film Screening: Spirit of the Indigenous Athlete
Oct 23 | 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm | MW110 | Sign up on CLNx
Enjoy a few short documentary films by Indigenous artists from across Canada, curated by imagineNATIVE -- the world's largest presenter of Indigenous screen content.
This film program contemplates the spirit of the athlete, in all its sporting and cultural embodiments. From bareback horse riding to race car driving, in the water or on the land, Indigenous bodies are a beautiful force of motion in a variety of physical and cultural arenas.
The screening accompanies Jalani Morgan's exhibition 9 Bats at the Doris McCarthy Gallery (September 24 - November 30, 2019). Playful, yet inherently political, the exhibition addresses issues of representation, myth-making, and unforgetting Black histories, through the lens of baseball.
Co-presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery and the Department of Student Life.
