About this Event
The 2019-2020 Catalyst Series for Social Justice kicks off with Indigenous Women Lead: Resistance, Creativity, and Healing.

Indigenous women have been the driving force behind many movements for social change, and yet, they are often rendered invisible despite the impacts they have had in illuminating and resisting injustice related to the environment, Indigenous rights, and reproductive and gender equity.

This event brings to light the leadership of Indigenous women in illuminating and responding to some of our most pressing social issues and how, through resistance and creativity, they are healing the world around them. In addition to screening The Source of the Wound, a short film about historical trauma and healing produced in collaboration with Native production company, Injunuity, Associate Professor Ramona Beltran will host a documentary screening and fireside chat with singer, songwriter, activist and documentarian, Kinnie Starr to talk about how creative works impact social change. Specifically, Kinnie will show her new documentary, Play Your Gender, which takes a hard look at gender inequality in the music industry.

Speaker Bios

Kinnie Starr of Dutch, German, Irish, and Mohawk descent is a genre-defying artist blazing her influential trail. Entirely self-trained, Starr moves from hip hop to art-pop, folk to spoken word to EDM with eclectic grace. Her music is fearless, intuitive, politically charged and melodic, challenging listeners while making them bounce and nod. Starr produces her own music, making her one of the 5% of female producers worldwide – a growing populus she spearheads by example. She investigates the complex conversation around the gender gap in music production and authorship with her 2016 feature-length documentary, Play Your Gender, directed by Stephanie Clattenburg in collaboration with Starr, produced by Sahar Yousefi, and co-written by all three women. This film looks at the lack of gender parity in the fields of songwriting, music production and live sound. It features interviews with Sara Quin (Tegan & Sara), Melissa auf
