An all-day event, this workshop will include short presentations by innovators in Indigenous art, cartography, digital scholarship, and historical research from throughout North America. Several participants are also educators and political activists, using visual media to confront the invisibility of Indigenous people and issues in modern discourse. In-depth discussions of the presented work will follow each presentation. The workshop will also include a gallery of the participants’ artwork, maps, infographics, and other imagery. As a whole, this workshop proposes and demonstrates ways to render visible the invisible by representing alternative visions of Indigenous pasts, presents, and futures.
