Otgwęj’ia:’ is a study of my identity as a First Nations- European Canadian, dissecting what it means to live in-between two worlds. My focus is on critical self-reflection and Indigenous-settler reconciliatory relations. I employ Ironic storytelling as an act of survivance in dealing with the conflicts of assimilation and cultural dominance.
