Thirza Cuthand has been making short experimental narrative videos and films since 1995 about sexuality, madness, Queer identity and love, and Indigeneity, which have screened in festivals internationally. She is of Plains Cree and Scots descent, a member of Little Pine First Nation, and currently resides in Toronto, Canada.

Michelle McGeough is a Métis scholar, artist, and Assistant Professor of Art History at Concordia University. Her research interests have focused on the Indigenous Two-Spirit identity. She is working on a manuscript that examines Indigenous understandings of gender fluidity and the impact these notions have on artistic production.

This event is made possible with support from the Margaret Lawrence Endowment Fund, the University of Winnipeg, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
