Indigenous kinship networks are vast, storied, and intertwined. In this talk, we reimagine worlds of what it means to be Indigenous and fall in love (and fall in lust!), wondering at the potentials of the erotic in Indigenous resistance movements, being with the land, and organizing for embodied sovereignties.

Tenille K. Campbell is a Dene/Métis author and photographer from English River First Nation, and the author of #IndianLovePoems. Erica Violet Lee is a Cree political theorist and community organizer in Treaty Six territory.
