Resilience Through Indigenous Humor

To celebrate Indigenous Heritage Month the Office of Diversity and the Women’s and Gender Center are happy to present Stephanie Pangowish. Stephanie is a sassy and bad-assy Anishnaabekwe from Wiikwemkoong on Manitoulin Island and is the co-founder of Canada’s first collective of Indigenous women stand up comedians, Manifest Destiny’s Child. She originally started performing to make her angry mom laugh and avoid the wooden spoon but now uses it to educate Canadians on Indigenous Culture. Stephanie has danced at pow wows for the past 10 winters, has watched every movie starring Adam Beach and pretends to have read all books about Indigenous people. In this virtual workshop Stephanie will dispel indigenous stereotypes, teach about native history, lead improv games, and generally make us laugh!
