Dale Deforest (Hero Twins), Mark Nazal (Diwata Komiks), Chag Lowry (Soldiers Unknown), Johnny Bear Contreras (artist), Sara Roldan (Our Oasis), and moderator Lorran Garrison (Little Brainstorm) explore the role of indigenous storytelling in comics and pop culture through their experiences of indigenous creators. The discussion will include the importance of cultural authenticity in their work and how they use traditional storytelling techniques in their comics. They will also delve into the challenges of depicting indigenous culture in a medium that is not necessarily rooted in it, and the ways in which they navigate those challenges. Also covered will be the impact of their work on indigenous youth and how comics and pop culture can be used as a tool for education and empowerment. There will be giveaways.
