A Powerful Wind on Turtle Island


Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - 12:00 to 14:00

A Powerful Wind on Turtle Island: Narratives of the Afro Indigenous Experience in the Americas.
With Alicia Aroche

Alicia Aroche is a producer and documentarian, who blends experience in literary, journalistic and academic publishing; participatory action research, media development and production.

Aroche is interested in narratives that do not shy away from the complexities and ambiguities of the human experience. She is particulary interested in facilitating storytelling among communities that have been historically silenced, marginalized and trauma-impacted; to support their healing and to inspire action.

Currently, she is in production on a documentary, based on oral histories that explore Afro-Indigenous narratives from both the United States and Canada; and a Story Map project that highlights the stories of community health workers in high poverty communities.
