Artist Talk with Michelle Sylliboy

Presenter(s):
Michelle Sylliboy

Interdisciplinary artist and poet Michelle Sylliboy (Mi’kmaq/L’nu) was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised on her traditional L’nuk territory in We’koqmaq, Cape Breton. While living on the traditional, unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, Sylliboy completed a BFA at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and a Masters in Education from Simon Fraser University. She is currently a PhD candidate in Simon Fraser University’s Philosophy of Education program, where she is working to reclaim her original written komqwej’wikasikl language. Her collection of photography and Mi’kmaq (L’nuk) hieroglyphic poetry, Kiskajeyi—I Am Ready, was published by Rebel Mountain Press in 2019.

Sylliboy will read from her new book Kiskajeyi—I Am Ready and talk about the work she has been doing with the komqwej’wikasikl (hieroglyphic) Mi’kmaw writing system.

Presented by Dal Reads in support of this year's title: Song of Rita Joe: Autobiography of a Mi'kmaw Poet
