The New Ways Quest

The postindian warrior is the simulation of survivance in new stories.

– Gerald Vizenor


New Ways Quest

  • What unhealthy behaviors do you have?
  • Get rid of them by keeping yourself busy!
  • Learn stories, learn about your history, learn a language, learn about medicinal plants, or learn skills to express yourself.
  • Tell a story in any medium that reflects your transition. For example, a mixed media piece inspired by learning an Indigenous language. This is an act of survivance!
  • Share your act of survivance by emailing the file or posting online, and tagging the act with #survivance.

Words of Elaine Grinnell

“I’d say it’s worth it. You’ll find new friends. You’ll find new things to do. And then you’ll be in control of your own life.”
