This talk will critically explore the theoretical, cultural, political-economic, and gendered dynamics underwriting the histories and futures of Indigenous new media. A key focus will be examining the ways in which new media and digital storytelling connect to and support key issues in the field of Indigenous studies, such as sovereignty, self-determination, decolonization, and land rights.
