Description

In Nishga, Jordan Abel documents memoir through personal anecdotes, excerpts from audio recordings, legal documentation, photographs, illustrations and poetry - his, but for all of us. Discussing intergenerational trauma, dispossession and displacement, relationships with Indigeneity, language, and truths through a type of research creation, Nishga is about imagining and reconstituting. Abel recognizes this in relationship to land through family, community, Nisga'a language, Nisga'a world views, and Nisga'a knowledge as Indigenous presence. Nishga explores colonial violence through three generations - his grandparents, his father's and his own, first originating at the Coqualeetza Indian Residential School affecting Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples.
