writing lives on land

Writing Lives On Land is a scaffolded writing series wherein indigenous, settler, and migrant participants use story-work to theorize belonging, identity, citizenship, and nation. Together we write genealogies of home, family, place, and (indigenous/settler) encounter. The series is offered in both workshop and course formats and has been implemented in classrooms at Ithaca College, Syracuse University, and Elmira College. To schedule a workshop or course contact Dr Cavino at

Writing Lives On Land is indebted to the scholarship, praxis, and mentoring of sister Dr Marcelle Haddix's Writing Our Lives project - nga mihi Marcelle!
