An Indigenous Spoken Word Artist Explores the Word "Indian"

Spotlight explores the stories behind the artists who come to Banff Centre.

 

Mitcholos Touchie, or A Mind With Wings, is a Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ/ Nuučaan̓uɫ artist from a small village on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. He was here for the Spoken Word residency in 2017. While here, he performed one of his pieces for us that explores the nature of the word "Indian." His work is political, expressive, and beautiful to behold. Learn more about A Mind With Wings and his writing process in this Spotlight video.
