The Queer Indigenous Gathering

Wednesday, March 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Queer Indigenous Gathering at Southern Oregon University Campus Event

Queer Indigenous Gathering at Southern Oregon University Campus Event

On March 14th 2018, students in the Queer Indigenous Studies course host the third annual Queer Indigenous Gathering: E ho’omaika’I kãkou e like me ko kãkou mau küpuna me ke kapukapu a me ka ha’aheo (Let us celebrate as did our ancestors of long ago) at Southern Oregon University in the Rogue River Room from 5 – 8 pm. All are welcome. This collaborative final project brings together concepts explored in our class including, survivance (survival + resistance = continuance), settler colonialism, heteropatriarchy, heteronormativity, eroticism, love, healing, and community. We have invited four amazing, creative, and knowledgeable LGBTQ2, Queer Indigenous, and Two-Spirit activists, artists, and scholars to share their stories and wisdom, and we are creating several educational resources for participants, including a resource booklet and several creative displays. We envision this event as a community dinner, an educational celebration, and a gift to our community, while it is also an intervention that serves to unsettle racism, settler colonialism, and heterosexism.
