How I Grew to Love and Make Indigenous Graphic Novels (and How I Became a Superhero)

BY NIIGAAN SINCLAIR
@ VOL 39 ON SEP 05, 2019

Niigaan Sinclair is an Anishinaabe professor, writer, and activist who loves graphic novels. However, growing up, he noticed a lack of heroes that looked like him, and any mention of Indigenous people in comics are more often than not base caricatures or stereotypes. In this enligtening PechaKucha 20x20 talk, Niigaan tells us how Indigenous culture and graphic novels are connected, what he did to help counter the negative representation of Indigenous people in graphic novels, and how he himself became a hero.

Niigaan's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 39, on September 5, 2019, at the Park Theatre.
