Revisioning the Americas through Indigenous Cinema is organised by the Groupe interdisciplinaire de recherche sur les Amériques in collaboration with DIALOG, Terres en vues and the Kanien'kehaka Onkwawenna Raotitiohkwa cultural and linguistic center.
Lands InSights / Terres en vues
Lands InSights / Terres en vues is an association focused on the distribution of Aboriginal culture. It is the guiding hand behind the Présence autochtone festival, which takes place every year, for ten days in June, in Montreal. The festival is a prime venue to witness Aboriginal creativity in the three Americas. Since its foundation in 1990, Terres en vues has created, both in its structure and in its activities, a space of expression and recognition for aboriginal artist and creators.
DIALOG, the Réseau québécois d’échange sur les peuples autochtones / Réseau de recherche et de connaissances relatives aux peuples autochtones (Quebec Exchange Network on Aboriginal peoples' / Research and Knowledge Network Concerning Aboriginal People), is an inter-university, inter-institutional, interdisciplinary, and international group that unites 120 people from a university or aboriginal context. It works in Quebec, Canada, the Americas, Oceania, Europe, and Asia. DIALOG is a forum which facilitates and supports meetings, exchanges, resourcing, and partnerships between universities and aboriginal communities. Revisioning the Americas through Indigenous Cinema takes place in the framework of the program for the realization of initiatives to mobilize knowledge by researchers, at DIALOG.
Kanien'kehaka Onkwawén:na Raotitiohkwa
The Kanien'kehaka Onkwawén:na Raotitiohkwa linguistic and cultural center was established in 1978 to preserve, promote and enrich the language and culture of the Mohawks of Kahnawake. We also promote awareness of Mohawk history to the non-Native communities and institutions surrounding Kahnawake. The organization serves as a cultural resource center with a specialized library and documentation center, a language center, an exhibit area, a video production unit, and a photographic archive.
