@Noon: Billy-Ray Belcourt
Indigenous Canadian poet Billy-Ray Belcourt reads from his award-winning debut work, This Wound Is a World, and his forthcoming work, NDN Coping Mechanisms: Notes from the Field. A member of the Driftpile Cree Nation, Belcourt grapples with the political demands of queerness, mainstream portrayals of Indigenous life, love and its discontents, and the limits and uses of poetry as a vehicle for Indigenous liberation.
