Abstract

Abstract:

For This Land provides an overview of the philosophy, concepts, practice, and inspiration adopted by one Indigenous media team. The 2Ro Media team has discovered, through their creative voice, a means to carry themselves back to their community from where they were not raised, where they felt a part of, and where they long to return. The article speaks of ways the team is asking permission to return by placing themselves on the land of their territories and engaging in new conversations with the land through interactive embodied storytelling. The narratives produced are both personal and universal. The artists recount, with brave openness, the vulnerability of their experience. The article presents an opportunity for the reader to place themselves inside their story to explore relatable narratives in their own lives. Through the story offerings embedded in the article, there exists potential for common experience to be explored thus creating spaces of compassionate and deeper relationships with each other.
