What does it mean to be Indigenous? This new work, inspired by writer Thomas King’s eponymous short film, I’m Not the Indian You Had in Mind, explores stereotypes existing within Indigenous North American and Indigenous Latin-American cultures. There are many points of intersection where social, race, and gender stereotypes collide across cultures. It is through this intersection and collision where stereotypes and preconceived ideas of what it is to be Indigenous can be transformed.
