Epic Voices: Injun with Jordan Abel

Apr 20, 2019 | 3:00 pm

Jordan Abel

Jordan Abel, a Nisga’a writer from Vancouver, gives a craft talk and performance of his Griffin Prize–winning long poem Injun, which investigates racist depictions of Indigenous peoples by using western novels published between 1840 and 1950 as source material for erasure, collage, and other poetic techniques that undermine the colonized notion of the “Indian.”

Co-sponsored by the Consulate General of Canada.

 

Admission $10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members
