The purpose of our TikTok workshop is to show youth how activism has evolved over time. For the first time in history, everyone has the ability to be seen by millions of people around the world and have their message heard.
TikTok is full of videos from cute dogs to fashion design, but it is also home to a new movement that has taken the world by storm – Indigenous TikTok.
Indigenous TikTok has formed its own community of Indigenous people and strong allies, creating videos incorporating Indigenous humour, culture, and awareness of Indigenous issues and Canada’s dark history. For the first time, people worldwide are receiving first-hand Indigenous education from Indigenous people! TikTok has been life-changing for organizations and people who want to spread awareness, showcase their culture, and connect with the world
in a time when personal connection is so low due to Covid.
Within this workshop, we will hear from three successful Indigenous TikTokers who have blown up on the app for their cultural sharing and advocacy. In each of these interviews, there will be discussion questions and pauses during the clips for activities and sharing.
