In Secwepemcstin (Indigenous language) “good morning” is tsecwínucw-k, pronounced as “chook-wenook.” However, literally it translates to “you survived the night.” Many tribal nations consider themselves as post-apocalyptic people for whom “survival has become an act of resistance.” Sounds familiar?

 

As we witness the world on and off, struggling through deadly disease, global confusion, Climate Change and one social catastrophe after another, we dedicate our season III entitled ‘Apocalypse Here’ to the Indian prophecies that project apocalyptic images of cultural, ecological and spiritual crises. In these series we speak about the complexity of the evolving pandemic, the unfolding of climate crisis, the destructive effects of racism, modern colonial tendencies, gender inequality, war, power abuse, propaganda and misleading news, sexism, domestic abuse, destruction of indigenous and marginalised cultures and communities, police brutality, refugee crisis, xenophobia, and more.

Indigenous peoples and their constant mode for survival yet remaining in tune with their spirit and
dreams inspire this edition, and our message is in fact not about the beginning of an end but about the collective healing, the strength, and the hope for an unapologetically healthy future, pulling through the failures of civility and the digital leviathan, whilst having art and culture contributing all the way into the fight that we all must join.
