Frances Koncan contributes op-ed to CBC on class and resistance

Frances Koncan

Read a new op-ed, entitled On avocado toast and the Indigenous millennial resistance, from Frances Koncan (CBC New Indigenous Voices) on CBC Arts. In the piece, Frances explores class and which storytellers get to tell which stories.

In her words, “People are so conditioned to expect and anticipate the Indigenous poverty narrative that they have trouble viewing us through any other lens. They don’t understand that our similarities are so much stronger than our differences. That when they wept for Harambe, so did I.”

Frances recently won the Winnipeg Arts Council RBC On the Rise Award.
