 Workshop: "Land, Love and Ceremony: A look at Canadian Indigenous Plays (Rez Sisters, Ernestine Shushwap gets her Trout, Baby Blues)"
Michelle LaFlamme, University of Fraser Valley
In this workshop we will discuss three central thematic issues that resonate in three contemporary Canadian Aboriginal plays. We will consider the plays in the context of the Indian Act and note how ceremony, love and the land are connected with survival of culture in these works. The role of the trickster figure in The Rez Sisters, as well as questions of leadership, community and sisterhood will be examined. The importance of land and the impact of colonization will be discussed in relation to Ernestine as a sample case that uses comedy to address the encroachment of settlers in BC. The Baby Blues will highlight some of the issues surrounding interracial relations and the role of hybridity in contemporary Aboriginal plays. Some scenes will be read closely and students will need to be familiar with these plays and bring them to the workshop. Finally we will think critically about the role of Aboriginal theatre praxis in the context of social justice and national literature.

la flamme michelleDr. Michelle LaFlamme (Métis, Creek and African-Canadian)
Michelle has taught for years at UBC and SFU and is currently a faculty member at the University of the Fraser Valley. She is an educator, performer, and activist with a doctoral degree in English literature from the University of British Columbia. Her dissertation, "Living, Writing and Staging Racial Hybridity," was awarded the Paul Stanwood Prize for the best doctoral thesis in the Department of English (2006) and is being published by Wilfred Laurier University Press. Her publications focus on representations of racialized bodies in Canadian novels, autobiographies and plays.

Michelle loves the theatre as much as she enjoys teaching. As a performer and activist she has been involved with the Aboriginal arts community, working with Margo Kane at Full Circle First Nations Performance and (IMAG) Indigenous Media Arts Group. She has also developed forum theatre projects with David Diamond's Theatre for Living. Though busy with her full-time teaching and research, she still delights in performing at various conferences and community events.

Social justice work is an essential element of her background and her passion lies in developing curriculum that reflects the worldviews of Aboriginal people. She has been the Program Director in the Centre for Aboriginal Programs and Services at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. Her highlights included developing and implementing the Aboriginal Leadership Certificate and gaining distinction for the highest enrolment and retention rates in this program. Michelle was also honored to be one of the first faculty members to teach in the First Nations Studies Program at UBC. In international contexts, Michelle has been a guest lecturer in Germany for a year of teaching in the areas of Canadian literature and Aboriginal theatre. She has also lived and taught in both the Netherlands and Spain.

Workshop: "Indigenous Methodologies and Contemporary Scholarship"
Ric Knowles, University of Guelph

How might scholarship be thought of differently through the lens of a (trans)Indigenous world view? In this workshop students will apply the principles of Indigenous methodologies derived from the work of Linda Tuhiwai Smith (Maori) and Shawn Wilson (Opaskwayak Cree) to their own work. Participants will be asked to submit abstracts of a project on which they are working and to read short selections from Smith and Wilson in advance of the workshop. Projects need not be about Indigenous studies or about drama or theatre, but can be in any area of cultural, literary, or theatre studies. In the room we will discuss the implications of the methodologies for their, or any scholarly work, particularly when that work involves focusing on a culture or cultures other than the scholar's own.
