Seminar: Hidden Voices: Uncovering the History of First Nations Women

Start: Feb 24, 2014 6:00:00 PM
End: Feb 24, 2014 7:30:00 PM

Dr Jacky Moore (Canterbury Christ Church University) - This presentation considers the complex lives lived by First Nation women through the words of one particular group, the Nuu’Chah’Nulth, who live on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Within an historical framework covering two hundred years from the arrival of Captain Cook in Nootka Sound on the west-coast of Vancouver Island in 1778 to the present day, it explores the stories recounted by these women, how stories have shaped their lives, stories silenced by the colonial context under which they grew up.
