Lii Zoot Tayr is exploring the seen and unseen in an effort to share those stories that frequently remain obscured from view. To this end, Dr. Sherry Farrell Racette will speak on the connections between and across various colonial sites in Toronto and their relationships with Indigenous histories in what is now known as western Canada. Dr. Farrell Racette will focus on important events that helped shape the Métis Nation in the Prairies, including the Trial of the Seven Oaks Battle, the resistance at Batoche, and the Queen’s Park monuments to Canadian soldiers who fought at Batoche. It is through acknowledging our shared colonial histories across these sites that we are able to think through possibilities for breaking through to other worlds.

Sherry Farrell Racette is an interdisciplinary scholar with an active arts and curatorial practice. Her work is grounded in story: stories of people, stories that objects tell, painting stories, telling stories and finding stories. She has done extensive work in archives and museum collections with an emphasis on retrieving women’s voices and recovering knowledge. Most recently she was cross-appointed to the Departments of Native Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Manitoba. Farrell Racette also had an extensive career in Saskatchewan education, working at SUNTEP Regina (GDI), First Nations University of Canada, and the University of Regina. She remains committed to experiential learning and Indigenous pedagogies.
