The MoCNA Reader—Monkey Beach

Fri, October 28, 2016, 12:00 pm1:30 pm

| Free

Join IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts’s (MoCNA) tri-monthly book club, The MoCNA Reader. Inspired by our exhibition, Rick Bartow: Things You Know But Cannot Explain—A Retrospective Exhibition, when we take up Monkey Beach by First Nations writer and IAIA MFA fiction mentor Eden Robinson. Monkey Beach is filled with details of Haisla culture and wildlife that surround the village of Kitamaat, Haisla Nation, which sits at the head of the Douglas Channel in British Columbia, Canada. Sasquatch or B’gwus in Haisla, is described as a large hairy monkey who is seen on Monkey Beach. These creatures—in both dreams and visions, or reality—are central to the plot of Monkey Beach.
