Join us Monday, November 28th, at 5.30PM CST, for a virtual conversation and making session with Māori anthropologists Tarapuhi Vaeau and MahMah Tetini! This program will focus on honoring Indigenous joy through the creation of an artifact in the form of a decorated picture frame. Participants will be encouraged to have an item ready to frame and share their creation. While customizing the frames, Tarapuhi and MahMah will share reflections and anecdotes related to the topic of Indigenous joy and frivolous acts of pleasure. All materials will be provided by MSA. 
About our conversation leaders:

MahMah Tetini is currently a PhD Candidate at the University of Canterbury. Her research centers the amplification of Indigenous and Pasifika voices within climate change spaces.
