Oklahoma convention celebrates Indian influence on comics

KTUL has an article about a Cherokee Nation-sponsored convention in Oklahoma centered on Indian influence for the comics scene:
Cherokee Nation is set to host SkasdiCon on November 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This event will celebrate the Native perspective and influence within the comic book scene and is the first-ever Indigenous comic convention.

[...] “SkasdiCon is providing a platform to celebrate and share the Native perspective and influence on comic books, video games, tabletop games, novels, film, television, and more,” said Talisha Lewallen, manager of cultural programs and events for Cherokee Nation Cultural Tourism. “Pop culture has proven its ability to unite people from different walks of life and by combining that with the Native perspective, we hope to give people a safe, shared space and time to be themselves and share what they love.”
Now here, again, is a part that's bothersome - "safe spaces". That has the risk and effect of making this sound more like a closed affair, which is ridiculous based on the political implications it took. Besides, aren't most conventions like these expected to have security, if hoodlums showed up?

I think the premise of this gathering is good, but the way these organizers keep using these talking points has long gotten absurd, and I wish they'd cut it out, and just encourage people to check out what's in store at the convention.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
