Ethnic Studies Professor Beth Piatote Collaborated with Ad Astra Comix that Specializes in Comic Books with Social Justice Themes
November 2, 2020
In February 2020, a group of Indigenous and allied scholars, including our very own Ethnic Studies Professor Beth Piatote, collaborated with Ad Astra Comix to produce a series of posters about some of the experiences that Indigenous peoples have in the academy. The result is the “So You Care About Indigenous Scholars?” a poster series that recognizes and celebrates Indigenous peoples and their ongoing survival, resistance and resurgence. These comix use humour and irony to create teachable moments for a broad audience and build critical consciousness.
