Monday, Aug 30, 2021 12:15 – 1:15 pm

201 E. Ontario
Chicago, IL 60611

Artist JeeYeun Lee and Kyle Malott (a member of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi) will discuss how language shapes human experiences of place, specifically the shore of Lake Michigan in what is now Chicago. In preparation for the preview of her work Shoreline later in the evening, Lee will present her research on the contestation of the lakefront through the language of treaties, lawsuits, plans, and other mechanisms of settler colonialism. Malott, a Potawatomi language speaker, will discuss that language and efforts to revive the languages of Indigenous nations.
