Circle of Voices

an ethnographic multimedia journey among Quebec First Nations*

How can you determine your future, and the future of your Nation if you don’t know your roots? This digital research project explores the process of cultural revitalization through land, language, art and spirituality. It displays the stories of six young women from the *Atikamekw, Abenaki and Wolastoqiyik/Maliseet Nations, as well as traditional knowledge holders. Its principal aim is to bring about educational awareness about the situation of Native youth, in particular women.

The collaborators

The young women

These women were the key contributors of the project. You can access their biographies by clicking on their pictures or on their specific page via the header. With various levels of participation, they took part in:
  • the sharing circles
  • the traditional dance workshops
  • the photography sessions

The knowledge holders

I conducted an in-depth interview with each of them, highlighting the role they play in the revitalization processes of the land, the language, the arts or the spirit of their Nations.

On social media, Circle of Voices wishes to offer a digital space to uphold stories of pride, resilience and hope for Indigenous youth.
